  2. Wow, all the time I’ve spent vegetating and yet never reflected upon my lack of engagement with the lifeforms of that kingdom. I mean, I’ve kicked around some theological issues with my kohlrabi, but rarely stop for snappy conversation with the snow peas. Thanks for the introduction to Stacey Johnson’s work, I love this.

  3. When it comes to our vegetal cousins I’ve always been amused by the description of so-called carnivorous plants–Venus flytraps, sundews, pitcher plants, and their ilk–as “reversing the order of nature”. Many plants feed off the remains of animals. Some have just found a way to speed up the delivery.
    Those potatoes could be waving because there’s more than a little of us in them.
