With the spring equinox almost upon us, it certainly is time for spring planting. A little work now produces bumper crops later. Of course some localities are conducive to a winter crop, such as winter wheat. Shown here is a rare breed. Clearly these shoots are already growing fast. They certainly have not reached full maturity yet when they do, they are certain to grace many a modeler's table. Photographs are courtesy of Andrey Veslivy.
