Saffron Bonanza

I really lucked out. A few years ago I got interested in saffron, and was disappointed by small unhealthy-looking bulbs ftom eBay. I gave up on saffron for that year, and pretty much the next day, I saw a display of saffron bulbs at a local feed store of all places, marked down 90%. This was more temptation than I could handle, and I bought the whole batch, ~100 nice bulbs. I gave some away, and a large number ended up in my south-facing lawn, where they seem fairly happy, and have started to form clumps. Harvesting is worth the effort!
