I am an aspiring herbalist and want to share my knowledge because I believe everyone should be able to be in charge of their health and vitality. Please ask me things, I don't know a whole lot yet, but am learning everyday and would love to try and help.
This is also just a place for things I find beautiful and for me to write lil ditties about my life.


Some crazy stuff I learned this quarter about fruit

Bell peppers are berries.
as are legumes, bananas, citrus, squash and watermelons.
Most things we consider vegetables are actually fruit (cucumbers, zuchinni, tomatoes, basically anything not a leaf or stalk).

But not strawberries. The red part is actually the engorged stem, and the little yellow dots on the outside are the fruit, which contains the seed.

Peanuts grow underground.

One pineapple is formed through many flowers.

I have no idea what the fuck kind of fruit a pomegranate is.

I have a similar aspiration. Good luck on your journey! Where do you get all of your herbs/spices?
by motherwanderlust

i get them from The Herb Shoppe in Portland Or (they have a location in NYC too!). Or, I order big bulk for my boxes from Mountain Rose and Starwest. Make sure to always buy organic and loose leaf!
