May-June edition of Afgriland

Published July 15, 2010 by Syllable

It is a little overdue, I know.

I did some research that led to a fascinating article about nutmeg. Turns out you can get high from it, and in the Middle Ages you could easily buy a mock-nutmeg to ward off evil spirits! And did you know that mace (a spice used in the production of the personal safety spray) also comes from the nutmeg tree?

I also took some pictures at the Pannar Farmers’ Day, as well as for the ‘Seen at the stores’ feature. We are a multi-talented bunch on the editorial team.

I usually do articles on plants, but I tried something different too – Africanis: a truly African dog. It was very interesting, but I still prefer plants; in general there is a lot more information available to source for research. Sometimes a little too much – doing a concise and accurate timeline of coffee was an awesome challenge.

Hope you enjoy the articles – feedback’s always welcome.
