Are you aware of plants’ strength? 😉 Welcome back dearest readers friends from the US, Spain, Germany, Canada, Dominican Republic, France, Italy, Puerto Rico, India, Croatia, Portugal, Thailand,, Japan, Czech Republic, Sweden, and the UK! 😉
Yesterday, a friend was asking me while we were chatting about work and she asked me: “What would you do if you were given another life?” She was talking about what kind of work or interest I had.
I said: “Well, in another life, I would love to study plants.” She was hilariously laughing as if it was a joke, and yes it was in a way.
Today I’m thinking why I said that, and the only answer I could come up with is the variety and the richness of the subject matter. Each plant has a life; a secret life. We know a little bit about few of them.
Take for example, the peanuts tree. You all eat peanuts or know what peanuts are, but do you know how that tree looks like? Do you know if it’s considered fruits or vegetables?
Botanically, nuts are classified as a fruit that has a single edible seed with a hard, inedible outer shell. … Interestingly, peanuts — one of the most popular nuts in the world — are technically a legume and thus botanically a vegetable.
The peanuts themselves grow under the soil. Did you know that? It’s quite interesting field, what do you think?
