Sorry Zachh, I see all my previous pics are down right now. I'll try and find them, and will take some this spring and summer and post.

The thing that I ask in return is that you first send me seed you have saved yourself, from your favorite/most valuable plant. This way I feel good about the odds of the seed that I send out being successfully propagated.

Not only that, but buckwheat is one of the best phosphorous accumulators out there and fruit bearers need it especially.
