Fox Tail Agave Update

The fox tail agaves are done blooming and are making a lot of seeds

The seed pods are opening and flinging seeds everywhere.

I wasn't that aware of them until I heard a bunch of rapid tapping out in front of the house. I looked out the window and the chickens were pecking up all the little black seeds.

The mother plants are now totally withered

But there are pups forming on the trunk

and bulbils forming on the tip of the bloom stalk
