A couple weeks ago, I discovered on youtube that the flowers growing in my backyard are called Jerusalem Artichokes AND I can eat them. Well, actually, the tubers that grow in the soil from the plant is what I will be harvesting and munching on here in the Fall.
Anyways, I was super excited that the guy who made the enlightening video, Anthony, confirmed this about my Sunchoke flowers because I had been feeling like there was more to these gigantic yellow flowers!! The video he made was almost like a mini-movie too – like this dude had some serious artsy editing skills or something!
Okay, so this shows you what I know (or don’t know lol) – last night, youtube tells me he’s uploaded a new video so I check it out and he’s talking about a documentary he made (which explains his videography awesomeness from the artichoke experience) and the full movie is on vimeo for us to watch! And it’s about plants – with fruit – in the jungle! So I’m intrigued of course because the other videos I’ve watched of him talking about his garden ARE DELIGHTFUL to watch. They’ve all had this energy – Like hipster chill fantastic good vibrations that make you satisfied you saw it – good energy!
So I shot on over to Vimeo & happily devoured the entire thing…
WOW!! Super duper f’n cool is all that I can say about this jungle adventure!!
Here’s the full movie!!
Botanical Explorers: The Fruitful Forest (Full Movie) from Hundredth Hominid Productions on Vimeo.
Anthony also mentioned on youtube that he’s fundraising on Indiegogo for a new camera to make more documentaries.
Gosh, he’s really good at it!! I can’t wait to see more someday 🙂
