We spent a few hours collecting oca (Oxalis tuberosa) cuttings with maturing pods today – about 250 in total. That should translate into a lot of seed. With more than 4000 seeds as of today, it is tempting to get lazy and let these open pollinated pods go, but there is no guarantee that we’ll have such favorable conditions next year, so we’re making oca seed while the fog drips.
Anyway, while we were out rummaging in the oca, I snapped a few pictures.

Oca seeds and tubers are sometimes available in our seed shop.
