Carnivorous Plants.

Who has heard of a carnivorous plant?  Not I said the fly.

Until my visit to a coffee shop the other day.

Next to my Grande Chai (that my sister so generously spent half of her gift card on) this was on the bar:

A Venus Fly Trap. 

A fly eating plant.

A plant.  That eats meat? 

I have some comments about that.  What defines meat?

Pork, beef, chicken…stuff like that.

NOT flies.

Since when are flies considered Carne?  Meat?  Edible?

The barista reported that the other barista has been raising carniverous plants since he was four.  Now, he’s six.

Or maybe 24ish.

But back to the fly/meat/carnivore issue.  Does that mean if you feed a carnivorous plant a steak…it’ll eat it?

But, if you were a fly….wouldn’t those teeth deter you from landing in the mouth of your destructor?

Must notta worked for that guy.  That little grayish brownish buggish looking thing there. 

Musta been dinner.

About The Goat Cheese Lady

I am Lindsey. At first I was a city girl. Then I was an urban farmgirl, attempting to balance city and farm life. Now, after moving to the country, I have embarked on life as a rural farmgirl, complete with my husband, the Animal Whisperer, man of exceptional knowledge and patience, two boys who are louder than my sister and I ever were, a herd of milking goats, and a flock of egg-laying chickens. Coyotes, mice, country dogs and prairie dogs are frequent visitors. Just 45 minutes north is Colorado Springs, the setting for our first six years in the goat world. Our family. Our city friends. Our introduction to cheesemaking. But we...and our growing farm and soon-to-be creamery...have set up shop down off of Highway 115 in Penrose, Colorado.
