More photos

I'm feeling a bit of general burnout today. Since I can't take a vacation, I'll post some more photos...

Apparently they can be popped like popcorn or milled like wheat. The leaves are supposed to be good as greens when they're tiny too. Of course I've never tried any of the above. I just had some seeds and decided to try it...
