  • Patiently waiting for its next victim ⚡️ Another incredibly smart plant that captures its nutrients through its open mouth like cup.
  • You can't help but look twice at this fruit. Double TAP if you agree! The Chinese Lantern is such a beautiful fruit as it sheds its skin. It is part of the potato family (weird huh?!) so make sure you wait until it's fully ripe before eating.

  • We took home some soil loving Biocast+ from @islandsinthestreamvermiculture who were at the Botanical Bazaar this year and wowza that stuff is explosive 💥 Its goodness traveled throughout the soil, invited all the teeming living microbes to a dirty party and then stayed up partying to ensure our fennel, lettuce, kale, celery and tomatoes become the happiest they'll ever be! Check out their page/website and if you get the chance to grab some, you won't be sorry!
