holy quinoa, batman

Quinoa is crazy.  It’s starting to turn a beautiful golden pink, demonstrating that the grain is ripening and leaning towards harvest.  (It quite literally leans; we’ve wrapped it up in pink tape not to package it prettily but so that the stalks support one another.)

The picture below is one plant — a plant which, a few months ago, was a tiny stunted little seedling that looked near death.

More informative posts soon — there are simply too few hours in the day!
