I love everything about this:
- Hearth cooking
- $250 analog kitchen gadget that does one thing: 🍳
- Alice Waters
- Anthony Bordain
- Intersectional feminism (sort of)
- Food culture personalities accusing each other of pretension
Also… I want one. But, like, a cheap one. To take glamping.
From Healthy Soil Microbes, Healthy People by Mike Amaranthus and Bruce Allyn in The Atlantic:
A recent experiment in the U.K. showed that mycorrhizal filaments act as a conduit for signaling between plants, strengthening their natural defenses against pests. When attacked by aphids, a broad bean plant transmitted a signal through the mycorrhizal filaments to other bean plants nearby, acting as an early warning system, enabling those plants to begin to produce their defensive chemical that repels aphids and attracts wasps, a natural aphid predator. Another study showed that diseased tomato plants also use the underground network of mycorrhizal filaments to warn healthy tomato plants, which then activate their defenses before being attacked themselves.

Someday I’ll move out of my parents’ house. The things I will miss include Dad randomly deciding to do paella.
