Milkweed Vine Pods
My neighbor has (had) a mature milkweed vine in his yard and growing up through his trees. I'd been eyeing the seed pods for the past month, thinking to myself that I was going to ask him if I could harvest them when they were ripe. Well, yesterday, he took a notion to pull the entire vine down out of the tree. :-( My husband ran over and asked him for the seed pods, but I'm not sure if they are going to be viable. What do you all think? Should I even bother with them? Only one of them shows the slightest change in color - the others are quite green.
I have a few of these vines in my yard that came up as a volunteers, but I used quite a bit of it to feed Monarchs this year so I didn't get any seed pods. I was hoping to plant some but give most of them away. I personally think they are pretty vine and the flowers seemed quite fragrant.
