and the lima beans laugh and laugh


When I took the excellent on-line class What a Plant Knows I learned a lot about plants and their reactions to the world around them.  The fact that they can't move means they have evolved a lot of ways to cope with their changing environment while staying put................

Here's a video from Atlas Obscura about how lima beans fight the caterpillars which eat them.  Attracting the enemies of their enemies is one of the plant defenses we learned about in the class.
