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 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.
