So Cool!

One of the things that I love about gardening is how aware it makes us of where our resources come from.  I felt this when I grew the luffa gourds last year.  I had always known that luffa came from the inside of a certain gourd but it never occurred to me that it was something that could be grown locally.  Earlier this year I went to a seed exchange and one of the items that I received was a small bag of sesame seeds.  I looked at the seeds and then at the man who had given them to me... I guess he could see the disbelief on my face because he grinned and said "RIGHT!?!"  

There are a few things that I want to try that are outside of the norm.  Tobacco and peanuts are on the short list. Sesame seeds, however, had never crossed my mind.  But...I thought I'd give it a shot and LOOK!!!!

Do you see all of those pods along the stalk?  Each one of them holds dozens of sesame seeds!
