Hail to the King

For those of you not familiar with the Sago Palm, there are four species of seed plants in the cycas family of Cycads.  These short evergreen 'palms' (though not even closely related to real palms or ferns) can grow anywhere from a few centimeters to several meters tall.  The most widely cultivated (seen below) is the Cycas revoluta, also known as the king sago palm.


I didn't plant this cycad, and it's not a fruit-bearing plant, so you may be wondering why I felt the need to share this nugget of information with you.  Add More Green isn't just about spending your time to harvest your own fruits and vegetables...it's about living in harmony with the beauty of nature around you and stopping every now and again to see how Mother Earth adds more green on her own.  I'll keep you updated as this new set of leaves continues to develop.
