MOST RECENT

Last week the giant hogweed (Heracleum mantegazzianum) was spotted in Virginia for the first time.
-
According to reports from the Massey Herbarium at Virginia Tech university, about 30 of these towering plants have been found in Clarke County, and locals are warned to keep an eye out for sightings.
Bristles, along with the rest of the plant, emit a nasty sap that chemically irritates the skin causing phototoxicity - severe damage to the skin through exposure to sunlight and UV rays.

Yellow coralroot #orchid (Corallorhiza trifida) I know it's not a great pic, but I'm so into #orchids I just had to share it. #plantsofinstagram #plantscience

It's been quite a summer so far. 🌱 I am so thankful to have been included on this project by such an incredible group of scientists. I can't believe how lucky I am to get to spend this summer surrounded by such brilliant and kind people. .

Gunnison’s Mariposa Lily (Liliaceae), Calochortus gunnisonii (Liliaceae)

🌸
Gunnison’s Mariposa Lily is a gorgeous native blooming on the plains that push up against the mesas in Boulder County. The white tepals form a cup with yellow hairs in rings on the inside. The flowers are about 15 or so inches off the ground.


This Mariposa Lily likes sunny open areas and seems to have no trouble competing with the grasses that often surround it. Gunnison’s Mariposa Lily can be found from the Plains up to 11,000 feet. Wow! Impressive range!

Seven Year Apple
Casasia clusiifolia

I have finally been able to identify this fruit as the Seven Year Apple, Casasia clusiifolia. I made this picture in 2007 somewhere in the family islands, it was either on Cat Island or Stocking Island in the Exumas. The fruit is edible when ripe (yellow) and the wood can be used in various wood building projects. The common name is an exagerration of the time the fruit needs to ripen, which is 10 months. I love going into the bush and finding out about plants, especially edibles and medicinals ! The Earth provides all that we need to live !

All about Legumes!
.
Legumes have been used in agricultural production since the earliest of civilizations. They are mainly grown for their grain seed called pulse. Well-known legumes include chickpeas, beans, alfalfa, peas, soybean and lentils. They are rich in B vitamins, and are also associated with a lower risk of diabetes.
.
.
Legumes share a symbiotic (mutually beneficial) relationship with bacteria called Rhizobia. Rhizobia are found in the soil – they infect legumes and produce nodules in their roots. Here, they fix nitrogen gas from the atmosphere by turning it into a more readily useful form of nitrogen. The nitrogen is then exported from the nodules and used for growth in the legume. Once the legume dies, the nodule breaks down and releases the rhizobia back into the soil where they can live individually or re-infect a new legume host. .
.
This symbiosis and nitrogen fixation minimizes the use of synthetic nitrogen fertilizers, and are the main reason why legumes are used in crop rotations. Researchers at the Noble Research Institute (@nobleresearchinstitute) study basic legume biology. The ultimate goal of this research is to improve legumes so that they can be used more widely in agricultural production systems.
.
.
The image shows guard cells in a leaf of the model legume Medicago truncatula. Guard cells are specialized cells in the epidermis of leaves, stems and other organs that are used to control gas exchange. The green color highlights the filamentous-actin (F-actin) cytoskeleton, while blue and red colors are autofluorescence from the cell wall and chloroplasts, respectively.

Lauren Walker, head of sourcing, shared this and I love it so much:
“ Elemi comes from the resin released from the bark of the Pili tree. It has a fresh and spicy aroma combined with citrus and woody undertones. Elemi has similar skin conditioning properties as frankincense and myrrh and help support wellness and relaxation.
Deforestation of the Pili tree was rampant over the past few decades and the tree was on the verge of being endangered. Also, the people of the Bicol region did not profit from the Elemi oil of their native tree. The resin was shipped to foreign countries and distilled, leaving no economic future for these local people in the Elemi market. A local woman by the name of Rosalina sought to change the Pili industry in Bicol. Young living partnered with Rosalina to educate the people about sustainable harvesting to ensure the betterment of their livelihoods. Young living eagerly offered the Happy Pili Tree farm a grant to build the first commercial scale distillery and help forge a bright economic future for the local Bicolano’s. Distilling the oil on site allows the Happy Pili Tree farm to practice Young Living’s Seed to Seal principles at every level.

Please share this Elemi Seed to Seal story and take pride that with every purchase of YL’s Elemi Essential Oil, you are supporting the livelihood of the people of the Bicol region and protecting the Pili tree from endangerment for years to come! ”
