Embracing Our Interdependence With Nature

Premature Frond

This would some day have been a palm frond. It is as thin as paper, and pretty strong. It is too tough to be chewed at all.

    Very interesting website. Nice photos and stories. I especially like your explanation of preparing swamp cabbage. When I was a kid, growing up on a farm in North Florida, Mama would give a piece of the accordion-like cabbage to my sisters and me, and we would pretend to be ladies fanning ourselves. Would you grant me permission to use your photo that says, “This would some day have been a palm frond…”? I would like to use it in a book I’m writing, Pumping Sunshine: A Memoir of My Rural Childhood. I would be happy to include a caption under the photo to give credit, with a link to your website.
