08.08.07 BUCKWHEAT BLOSSOMS
I love to grow plants I have never tried before. This year I am growing a number of plants which are valuable to subsistence farmers around the world. This is buckwheat, a fast growing crop which does well in low-fertility soil. It is not related to "wheat" at all, but gets its name from the fact that its seeds are ground into a flour.
