Turbo-charged soil

Sorghum

I planted Artemesia's plot of special treats (aka sorghum) in a very well-mellowed hugelkultur bed this year. The results were amazing --- the plants shot up so tall I felt like Jack peering up his beanstalk.

...Then along came a heavy rain that knocked half of the plants down. I guess that's the downside of turbo-charged soil. It's sometimes necessary to give those extraordinarily large plants some extra support!
