5 stars! That is amazing!
I would print that first picture and frame it if I were you.
I can crop it for you and set it as your avatar if you would like.

Anyway, that is truly an awesome bunch, good job, and congrats!
Apologies in advance if I am slow to reply to your PM. I suggest posting in the forums for support if you need something urgent.

Yes, mine had 19 hands - most of anything I grow. However, was not as impressed with the flavor in comparison to other FHIA varieties.
