The Magic of Green
Some years ago I remember planting my first batch of tomatoes. We were living in Western Australia at the time where the soils are very sandy and as we watered the plants – we wondered.
We wondered, ‘how does a seed or a plant placed in soil combined with just water and sunlight result in something as nice to taste as a tomato on toast?’
The entire planet relies on green chlorophyll through the process of photosynthesis taking carbon from the air, hydrogen from the water and converting it into food that looks nothing like air or water but nonetheless it contains energy from the sun! Chlorophyll is this amazing miracle ingredient that is found in plants and it is generally thought that the greener the plant the more sunlight it has absorbed. Which makes sense when you think that for some plants they lose their colour in autumn.
