Let flowering begin: Swedish adlay inflorescences are peeping. This variety is weirdly precocious and survived (only just!) the Beast From the East late winter blast in a 1 litre pot in my back yard in Cornwall #adlay #coix #coixlacrymajobi #poaceae #coixlacrymajobivarmayuen

Adlay, the next generation. Coix lacryma-jobi var. ma-yuen is a fascinating grain crop, with highly nutritious seeds. On the left 'Mekong', on the right 'Swedish'. It's fun to compare and contrast - they're already very different. Thanks to Nathalie Simonsson #coix #coixlacrymajobi #coixlacrymajobivarmayuen #poaceae #adlay #agrobiodiversity

Job and his amazing technicolor leaf display. Well, red and green, anyway. Wrapping up the sprouting adlay plants (Coix lacryma-jobi var. ma-yuen) against the return of very cold weather. Here's hoping for a tear-free weekend. #coix #coixlacrymajobi #coixlacrymajobivarmayuen #adlay #poaceae

Trying to keep one of the best from the east safe from the Beast from the East. Moving my surviving adlay plants (Coix lacryma-jobi var. ma-yuen) to a frost-free location #adlay #coix #coixlacrymajobi #coixlacrymajobivarmayuen #poaceae #adlay #winter #uk

Adlay (Coix lacryma-jobi var. ma-yuen) soft shelled version of Job's tears. Highly nutitious grain. Just need the universe to deliver an ultra early variety. #adlay #coix #coixlacrymajobi #coixlacrymajobivarmayuen #cornwall #alternativegraincrops #futurefoods

Windowsill adlay trial. The variety on the right is small and spindly, rather unimpressive at first glance. It has been flowering for a couple of weeks, however, making it by far the earliest variety I have ever grown - a gift from Nathalie Simonsson. #adlay #coixlacrymajobi #coixlacrymajobivarmayuen #cornwall #jobstears
