Is this green slug caterpillar
Limacodid Slug Caterpillar (Belippa horrida walker）
牠很慢速度的移動。好奇心的驅使下，把牠翻過來，應該是一種毛毛蟲。費盡力氣上網搜查。先用形容詞如「毛蟲 」「圓形」「蛹」等字眼，找到 Green Slug Caterpillar。從這裡進而查到 Limacodid 刺蛾科。以照片的相似度，找到三種學名，所以還無法確定到底是哪一種。
最可能是 Belippa horrida Walker 背刺蛾，真難想像牠長大後是一隻蛾，這麼醜的蛾。
The purple one seems to like the terroir best judging by their size compared to the others. The red and orange ones are smallest.
How to do justice to the gorgeous colours, flavours and texture of these carrots? Cooking them in stews would ruin their colours. At the end I decided to roast them in the oven, coated in olive oil for 30 minutes at 200 delicious. This turned out to be too long for the smaller size carrots. Served them up on a bed of carrot leaves, with a sprinkle of sea salt and black pepper. To die for freshness, from garden to table in less than 60 minutes.
This rosemary bush has been around for at least 6 years and its the first time I noticed the purple flowers.
Ping and I set up the Ripplemaker Foundation to make a difference through entrepreneurship, community regeneration and circular economy innovation. This is our first experiment, putting the bottles of our beloved Antipodes water, which is already certified as carbon neutral, into the glass circular economy. Thanks to the help of Ting-An Wu of Spring Pool Glass, we turn these beautiful bottles into tumblers which can also be used as storage jars for seeds and spices.
Enjoy this amazing mineral water from 327m beneath the earth’s surface with the handpicked roselle grown organically in our Nonzero Farm by the Pacific Ocean on the foothills of Dulan Mountain.
Since coming to Taiwan, a society with very high green-consciousness, I begin to notice how much waste we create, especially in the gifting rituals. The gifts must be beautifully boxed and wrapped with multiple layers of protection inside. This became a design challenge for us.
1. The beautiful white box carries a very subtle “savor your water savor your day” message, that’s it. No logos, no other visual branding wordings on it. The box is meant to be re-use, a place to store the postcards and thank-you notes.
2. The roselle from our Nonzero farm was handpicked by the farmer, choosing the most beautiful blooms and dried in an upright position to maintain its shape. We purposely not wrapped the roselle in individual wrapper, to minimise the use of plastics.
3. The glasses come with a lid so they can be used as storage jars for spices. For me, I will use them to store the seeds I collected. Seeds are a source of life!
It has been raining the past couple of days. Perhaps it’s the dampness. I noticed these strange cups, like tiny nests of eggs, on the vegetable patch. For someone who suffers from trypophobia, an aversion to the sight of clusters of small holes or bumps, their sighting gave me instant goosebumps.
The Nidulariaceae are a family of fungi, commonly called bird’s nest fungi. The black seeds are not actually seeds but eggs containing spores.
The carrots look great, still in the baby stage though. Lots of lettuce this year, another salad day!
This was supposed to be a temporary wall to provide some privacy from the construction site next door. It lasted three years and withstood the battering of numerous typhoons during these three years.
It’s a work of art, the symmetry design of the support system.
This is the new wall!
