  1. Amaranthus tuberculatus: amarante tuberculée!

    see this adress:

    from the latin name you get the standard french name (if the plant is present in Québec!)

  2. Heliotope looks so nice, but I'm not sure it would grow here. I just started harvesting my grapes. I already have 10 pints of jam! Much better than the stuff you get in the stores.

  3. Hey you have a lotta nice blooms here! I especially love the heliotrope - and isn't the smell amazing?! The Susans and nasturtium are really pretty, too.

    You asked about my "dancing snake" gourd seeds. I got them from either Johnny's or Baker Creek. I'll probably order some more if I see them - I cut up a gourd to taste it and it's a lot like cucumber!
