09.19.07 OPEN SESAME!
One of the plant experiments I tried this year is sesame, Sesamum indicum. I used seed collected from a mix sold for sprouting at an organic grocery store. Thomas Jefferson tried to grow it at Monticello hoping to make salad oil. Mine is doing fine and is quite beautiful. I look forward to the day this fall when those green pods have dried and pop open to share some seed with me.
