I'm surprised you don't have saffron. Isn't that the classic source for yellow dye? Or is really difficult to grow in these parts?

It's not that... it's that you use just the stamens, and it takes so very much to make a decent dyebath. I'd need a whole field of it, and the yard is about 6'x10'. I thought about safflower, but there were some growing issues that didn't fit in with my ignore-it philosophy.
