Terrific Tip: Flip the bell peppers over to check their gender. The ones with four bumps are female and those with three bumps are male. The female peppers are full of seeds, but sweeter and better for eating raw and the males are better for cooking. Isn’t that cool? 


That is awesome!

if this is true this is so freaking cool

Definitely not true. Bell peppers are the fruits of Capsicum annum, and in botanical terms they are berries: a mature fruit formed from a single ovary. There is no such thing as a male or female pepper; they are all matured ovaries that contain seeds.

Sumac foraging has started in ernest. Cold steeped Sumac tea with just a pinch of dried hibiscus flower makes the most refreshing summer drink when you’re hot and tired. We have Smooth Sumac in this area which the majority of people consider a weed. Anti-fungal, anti-microbial and antioxidant are just a few of the benefits from spending a few hours outside.

I need to learn how to better identify red sumac… I love the pink lemonade flavor.

fuzzy antler branches velvety red berries that are kinda sour leaves are kinda like golden rain tree there’s some in ramshackle~
