Luke, I'm Your Fava

~

A Carolina Anole climbs a bamboo support pole, only to discover the truth.

The fava beans that we planted are really taking off and we should be able to harvest some of them before too long. Favas are extensively cultivated throughout the world, and yet here in the U.S., we rarely ever see them in stores or on the table. They are also excellent nitrogen fixers, taking up inert atmospheric nitrogen and converting it to a form suitable for both plants and microorganisms.

Surely I’m not the only one who hears “fava beans” and can’t help but think of a creepy scene from Silence of the Lambs.
