Life is always an adventure when you live with a biologist/botanist. Most people just have relatively mundane items in their fridge at any given moment. However, the day I open up the fridge and don’t find something unique is relatively rare.

For instance, a couple of days ago, I opened up the fridge and bound a burlap sack containing some sort of nut on the bottom shelf. Apparently, the nuts will be used to grow new tree sat a nursery, but need to be kept cold until they can be cleaned, sorted, and delivered.

Yesterday, I opened up the fridge, and instead of a burlap bag full of nuts, there was a gallon-size Ziploc bag full of dirt and buckeyes. I can’t remember why that bag needs to be kept cold (and full of dirt), but it seems there was a reason.

Sometimes the fridge is populated by leafy denizens of the forest that I cannot identify, at other times we seem to be providing a fall-like habitat for grasses.

Regardless, it’s always entertaining.
