THE PLANTS WE EAT

By the author of Play With Plants, Play With frees etc., presents a goodly portion of edible flora for careful inspection. Dividing her material into chapters on roots, stems, leaves, flowers, fruits and cereal grains, there is information explaining how each of the typical plants grow and experiments that will help observe this growth right at home. We learn many interesting facts- that the potato is part of a stem rather than a root, that broccoli, like cauliflower and artichoke, is one of the few flowers we eat, etc.
