Mary Daisy Arnold, Pomegranate (Punica granatum)
The USDA Pomological Watercolor Collection is one of the most unique collections in the National Agricultural Library (NAL). As a historic botanical resource, it documents new fruit and nut varieties and specimens introduced by USDA plant explorers from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The collection spans the years 1886 to 1942, with the majority of the paintings created between 1894 and 1916. The plant specimens represented by these artworks originated in 29 countries and 51 states and territories in the US; there are 7,497 watercolour paintings, 87 line drawings and 79 wax models created by approximately 21 artists.

I would like to thank my mother for her extensive knowledge of pomology and my father for his extensive knowledge of beer tap mechanisms and the use of quicklime in painting and I would like to thank myself for my extensive knowledge of production of liqueurs and fruit based spirits that saved me a lot of googling.

Chandler Walnut | Best Quality Walnuts in California
Tumblr media
MOXLEY GARDENS
Since 1993, Published research has been investigating how eating walnuts affect various heart health biomarkers and risk markers including:
LDL and HDL cholesterol
Apolipoprotein B and non-HDL
cholesterol
Blood Pressure
Inflammation
Endothelial function
Plaque formation
NEW BIOMARKERS
October 2019, Moxley purchased a home with a Barn for his woodworking business, and along with this home is a Three Acre Walnut Orchard. The trees were old and neglected so Moxley wanted to restore their vigor. When he purchased this home, the trees were in harvest, so he decided to jump into this harvest with both feet.
This community of Red Bluff CA was so welcoming, everyone helped Moxley with no Egos, only Comradeship, and this could be said that this was a beautiful thing.
We were able to get the walnuts harvested, shelled, inspected, certified of quality, and boxed for sale. And our first harvest of 2019 was a nice 1200 pounds of walnut meats, boxed in 25-pound boxes.
Winter of 2020, we Pruned this neglected orchard, we sprayed organically approved pesticides for Blite and fertilized the soil and trees. Spring 2020 the trees are showing so much growth and Vigor, they are producing nut clusters of three and four nuts to a cluster.
SIMPLY AMAZING.
Happy Trees & The Orchard,
So this year we are hoping for a bountiful harvest of three-four times the harvest of last year.

In California, these walnuts are harvested in the fall between September to early November. They grow best in well-drained, deep, and fertile soils.

Shells: Chandler shells are large, smooth, and oval-shaped with good seals that prevent accidental breakage irrespective of the age of the tree. Initially, chandler shells are thin, however, as the tree ages, the shells strengthen.

Eureka!
Tumblr media
For as long as I can remember, and even today, the chicken nugget has become the enduring symbol of the fast food industry. A go-to choice for kids and hungry adults alike. It may be simple and delicious but it's interesting to know that they were first made by a Cornell professor. A graduate of pomology, the study of fruit cultivation, Baker's invention renewed interest in chicken in a post world-war 2 world. Preferences which continue to be prevalent today.

Botany. The study of plants in an effort to understand the world we live in. It is one of the fundamental disciplines of biology. I have chosen this subject as a result of my curiosity on what people study to lead them to quirky professions. The occupations of florists and landscape designers have always intrigued me as although they are very visually concerned and an artform in themselves, there is so much science and history involved in the background. I have always wondered if they have to learn about plant structures and the anatomical research. I decided to look into the practice of botany as it was the scientific element that interested me most. In my research I discovered how vast this field was and how it is an umbrella covering specific studies; for example, Olericulture [Fig.1] is the science of vegetable growing while Pomology [Fig.2] studies fruit and its cultivation. Ever since I can remember my mum has always held an interest in growing and keeping plants. There isn’t a room in my house without a plant in it and during the summer you can always find my mum tending to the garden. I think her interest stems from her upbringing in the Philippines. My grandfather was a rice farmer and so mum was raised in an agricultural environment. When interviewing mum about rice cultivation she said she found the rigorous steps in planting rice the most interesting [Fig.3]. Specific mechanical devices are used to sow the rice seeds at a specific depth and position in the soil. I find it funny when mum comes back from a friend’s house and is happy to bring home a small cutting of a plant. From that cutting she is able to propagate new plants. Plant names are also topic of interest for me. We are able to recognise plants from their common names but they vary in region and so most plant encyclopaedias refer to them by scientific Latin names [Fig.4]. We all recognise the name tomato, but its proper scientific term is Solanum lycopersicum [Fig.5]. The concept of having formal latin terminology for everyday items is a concept that excites me. The portrayal of exaggerated caricature botany in movies has also stimulated my interest. In films such as Little Shop of Horrors they create the character of a Venus flytrap with a thirst for blood [Fig.6]. The portrayal of plants having killer attributes is seen in multiple movie brings me to question if plants can have different behaviours. I would be interested in creating personalities for plants based on the way they look and their cultivation requirements.
