That was an annual? Not in my climate. No way, it'd be one foot tall and resemble broccoli, I'm certain of it.

He grew it in New York state which I thought was interesting as I would have expected it some place with a warmer climate.

Still that is wild being an annual.

My first thought was maybe I could grow a quick windbreak!

There is a thread in the veggie forum about this plant. Apparently it is a grain substitute. Somehow you eat it like wheat, though way before it gets this big. It's easy and quick to grow and very nutritious. So I read. Wierd is what I say!
