Have you ever wondered where rice comes from?
We as consumers often don’t know much about the plants and foods we eat. We’ve discovered for example that many people have no idea that dates are the fruit of date palms - and that palms aren’t even trees, but rather a member of the grass family. Isn’t that fascinating! I’ve also found that people are excited to learn more about the foods they eat. I for one have not seen unprocessed rice before. This is Basmati rice grown by @rueandforsmanranch here in California. I love that they are sharing pictures like this one, showing the flower and grain that yields the rice and helping us all appreciate the source of the foods we enjoy. 🙌🏻 #thewonderofplants #knowyourfood #growingthings

My process is weird. I moved my office around so I could have a plant shelf. Plants are arguably accessories, and office functionality should supersede accessorizing. But when your house has effectively three windows that are good for growing things and you’ve discovered your love of growing things and fall is impending... you do what you must. Which, in this case, was leave the office (and rest of the house) upended for the sake of a pretty place to grow things. ❤️ #houseplants #growingthings #diy

More joys from Kew, where @elizabethjanelawson and I spotted these cheeky asparagus spears poking through the gauzy foliage. Asparagus is a treat but takes three years to be harvestable! Romans were so fond of it that they developed ‘asparagus fleets’ especially to harvest it, and even worked out how to freeze it by storing it in the alps #asparagus #asparagusseason #asparaguslove #gardening #garden #vegetables #vegetablegarden #gardensofinstagram #botanicalgardens #botany #horticulture #growingthings #plantbased #plantsmakepeoplehappy #plantfacts @kewgardens

It's not the most impressive plant or photo, but I've been gifted an actual pineapple plant. If I were a Georgian/Victorian, this would mark me as super wealthy, and eventually display it on my mantlepiece for guests to see. As it is, I think it will join the strawberries on the kitchen windowsill.
