I would have grabbed a couple of bushels and but them in my backyard!
The thought has crossed my mind to ask one of the farmers to sell me a couple of stalks, so I could try my hand at fermenting / blending / rolling, but I'm way too busy to add another hobby, and I'm sure that one would be require a high commitment to do well.
I remember my dad talking about working my uncle's farm. You dont want the plant to waste energy producing seeds. You would leave a small section of the crop to grow seeds for the next harvest and the rest would be cut. They would walk down the rows and snap off the flower stalks.
