Was trolling for pictures and found this really cool site Cool

http://www.eatweeds.co.uk/wild-seed-crackers

And as I was trying to get my hands on some Himalayan balsam seeds to plant (you gasp but its true, I want some Wink ) this recipe was rather apropos Laughing

I am suitably chastised Embarassed Laughing but I still want some! I tend to doubt that with the heat and drout that they will be a problem in Central Florida Laughing I bought some mixed balsam seeds this year and they are pretty but are small and the flowers are hidden in the foliage.

Cant say either about the HBs!

You'd better check that they're not considered an invasive or noxious weed before you go head - just in case. USDA has a list you can go through.

Nope, its just fine over here. In fact, I am not too sure if it will even grow once the summer heat hits.

Would like to give it a try *hint hint*
