ok but I just really love the names they give them

"The Ridiculous Potato"

"The Unfortunate Clementine"

I’m giggling it’s like a team of ragtag misfit superheroes

I love the sometimes absolutely ugly but completely tasty produce that comes out of my garden.

this is great! food waste is a big issue, and seem ridiculous considering how many people are starving/unable to afford produce, while those marketing are tossing so much away

also if you want to take the message another way, it’s a reminder that not fitting into societal beauty expectations, does not diminish your quality  

I heard about this. I think it’s great. The ugly stuff tastes better anyway.

The only thing I asked my youngins to harvest while we were gone were the gooseberries. They were just coming ripe. Guess what? We have no gooseberries. The birds got them. I forgot is not acceptable! Le sigh…

"His grandmother and I are raising him. I worry about putting him into the public school system. I was a teacher for many years. I’ve seen so much confidence destroyed by the standardized system. Every human is born with natural curiosity. I’ve never seen a child who wasn’t inspired. But once you force someone to do anything, the inspired person is killed. I dropped out of school myself in 7th grade. So I know. I taught a GED course for years, so I’ve seen the end results over and over. I’ve seen so many kids who have complexes and insecurities because they were forced to do something they weren’t ready to do, and then they were blamed when they weren’t able to do it. What we call ‘education’ today is not organic. You can’t take something as complex as the human mind, compartmentalize it, and regiment its development so strictly."

So, nothing died while we were away. But no one was on caterpillar duty either, so the cabbage is, uh, lacy.

Redwood National and State Parks (NPS) - CA, USA:
There are many different types of berries in the forests of Redwood NSP. Some, like blackberries and thimbleberries, are edible and can be collected in modest amounts. 
Others, however, are NOT to be eaten. Pictured here is clintonia, also known as bluebead lily for obvious and colorful reasons. Its vibrant, almost unnaturally blue berries may look tasty, but make no mistake- eating them may leave you with a painful stomach-ache!


There was so much to eat in those woods! I am certain I could forage all spring and summer fairly easily in Northern California.

I love my best friends so much! You know they are the Ones when you don’t see each other for nearly a decade and it all just clicks like old times.
