I first read about Johnny Appleseed on a flight to Hong Kong and wrote about him on this blog and a friend and reader of this blog, Kyle sent me a very interesting book about the subject and more. The book is titled “The botany of desire” written by Michael Pollen, a man I would love to meet one day. He is not new to me, he does make it onto radio 4 every now and then. I am enjoying reading his book. The four plants that are looked at are Apple, Tulip, Marijuana and Potatoes. Thank you so much Kyle for an interesting read.
Way to go Kyle, the looks like a fun read L

It’s an interesting premise. Plants manipulate people. Whether or not you accept the premise, the botany is fascinating. K
