Fenucreek

Anybody familiar with fenucreek? I plant seeds every sommer 3 times and when fenucreek is ready to be plugged, than I process it, by, freezing, drying, using it in food preperations. It is extremely healthy against Diabetics and with a little bit of bitter taste... I just love it.

Fenugreek is good in herbal tea blends too.

I don't grow it, so I don't know what it means to be "ready to be plugged."

Fenugreek

I grow fenugreek in my garden now for two years. I use the green leaves in vegetable curry dishes and the seeds can be ground and used for curry powder. It has a wonderful maple aroma and flavor. It is also an herbal aid to lactation when made into a tea. I just love it.
How does your garden grow?

fenugreek is also called methi by my Indian and Pakistani friends. They said the fenugreek sprouts have a curry flavor and you can use them like alfalafa sprouts in pocket bread sandwiches using pita or naan bread.
Happy gardening in Hawaii. Gardens are where people grow.
