This is really amazing when you stop to think about how this works and the additional value of growing your own garden.

I have about 40+ pepper plants growing right now and am up to my armpits in peppers to dry. Needless to say I have tons of pepper seeds (children)

Phytomphalos, the recognition that plants are the 'umbilicus connecting the plants to people to the planet'.


The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the Eyes of others only a Green thing that stands in the way. Some see Nature all Ridicule & Deformity, & by these I shall not regulate my proportions; & Some Scarce see Nature at all. But to the Eyes of the Man of Imagination itself. As a man is, So he Sees. As the eye is formed, such are its Powers.

William Blake Letter to Dr. Trusler (23 August 1799)
