Gigantic Castor Bean Seedling

One of the things I picked up at Seedy Saturday was Castor beans (Ricinus communis) because after reading about them in Wicked Plants and seeing them grow dramatically in my neighbour's yard last fall (picture below, left) I thought they would look awesome and block out my view of what I call the "kegger house" backyard.  Oh the joys of living in a university town.  Anyways, I knew the castor beans grow multiple feet in just a few months and therefore must have a pretty high growth rate... but I wasn't quite expecting this monster seedling!!  Its awesome, I can't wait till it gets bigger and I can put it outside grins
