I grew 2 1/2 lbs of these babies, on a 4-foot wide trellis! Feeling very pleased.

These are different from other lentils. Tthey're, uh, not lenticular, for starters. More wedge-like, but irregular. When cooked up, they look like cute, little, miniature hominy. Tasty too. I heard about these first in a book by William Woys Weaver. I wish I could find out more about them (like, are they really Ethiopian?), but all I can find are links for Indian yellow lentils/dal or circle back to the people I got these seeds from in the first place.

Maybe next year I'll grow a few regular lentils, just for comparison.
