Plants. Succulent tubers, odorous evergreens, and slimy algae. Masters of chlorophyll! Supreme leaders of carbon dioxide exchange! Kings of your dinner table! They've done so much for us over the years, but can we as a species say that we've done very much to return the favor? The very least we can do during the month of March is attempt to educate our fellow meatsacks about the glory of trees, ferns, shrubs, roots, bushes, grasses, seaweeds, and so forth.

Think of all the magical things you can do with plants! You can make poisons, send a message to a lover, or eschew a carnivorous lifestyle. You can flatten out the pretty ones, burn them for warmth, or go snorkeling and get lost.

Get to it, noders! Sing the praises of a posy! Shout the splendor of a sequoia! Or just node a really good vegetarian recipe, that works too.
