Domesticated / by Karie Luidens


This “spectrum” of plants I’ve tended from seed to seedling to maturity, while diverse in their origins and characteristics, all have at least this in common: they are species that were domesticated by our ancestors. They were selected and bred for their big, juicy fruits, the sort that make for salads and salsas and soups.

Knowing that they’re going strong out back, I’m leaving them behind for a couple days to venture out into the forests and experience a taste of their wild cousins.
