Found these gorgeous plants outside next to my "tvcasualty's wet towel tek" sterilite bin. Funny thing is, I haven't planted these in a couple years! They are lauren's grape papaver somniferum.
I have elected to not grow poppies... I am trying to live 100% opiate free... I didn't set that stuff down two Septembers ago to take chances and end up right back where I started....
I'm baffled as to how these took 2-3 years to show up. Plus they're way off season, it's hot as balls here, I thought they liked spring times/temps.
Now I'm debating whether to just let them flower out or slit the pods and collect the latex. Opiates are the only thing that actually work on my ADHD and I never had a problem with them. I could do 10 percs a day for a week and then just go thru withdrawal and be done with them for a year..
