Today, we covered a lot of ground, from Earth Kind Gardening to plant growth and development.
Three things I learned today:
Glucose is the beginning of all growth, including plants. Such a simple formula - CO2 + H2O = H12O6 -with such life-altering impact.
Anything that contains a seed with maternal tissue around it is a fruit - including tomatoes and a pecans.
One pollen grain is needed for each egg (Yes, plants have ovaries and eggs) to be fertilized. Some have hundreds of eggs.
I also learned that, like the wonderful Dr. Dennis Franklin, who taught the Plant Growth and Development, I am a plant nerd. Yeah for me!
