Piroque/Pirogue on Between You and Me last week...

On last week's Between You and Me we talked about holiday gift ideas - especially unique and inexpensive gifts.

Don from Suomi called in to tell us about piroques.... how you can go online, find the plans and get a kit...see here for more info.

What is a pirogue?
{pee roe} a cajun canoe, originally made from a dugout cypress log, usually flat on the bottom and pointed at both ends.

Thanks to Bonnie the Plant lady for sending links and information about the piroques....check here for information about Lousiana Piroque seeds!

As for the spelling, I've seen it both ways - pirogue or piroque.
