Over the years I've shared many snippets of plant related conversations I've been privileged to overhear. This is my latest. Andrew and I were walking and came upon two young men having an animated conversation on a front porch. This is what we heard:
"it’s like a tequila made from an 800-year-old agave plant!"... he was so excited. I think he sensed we were too, I mean naturally ours ears perked up at the idea of an 800 year old agave plant. They stopped talking and greeted us with a "good afternoon" as we passed. I really wanted to stop and find out more ("like tequila" ???..."800 years old" !!? is it good?), but they weren't masked and so the darn COVID won and we walked on and the mystery remains.
