Red Castor Beans

After being beaten down all summer by the heat and lack of rain, the annuals are perking up for a last hurrah! I was out at our farm in Pike County Missouri yesterday and admired my Red Castor Bean plant.  I love the bright red pods. Every year I harvest the seeds from these pods and use them again next year. I also gather the dried zinnia flowers and reuse their seeds.
