Daily Nudge: favorite biblical plant or fruit

So asks the Nudge today of the Fellows: what is your favorite biblical fruit or plant? And we expect an explanation, of course!

Let me go ahead and answer this one. I’ve been missing the Nudges a lot lately.

I like figs, but prefer the dates. They are great in an almondshake! And the date palm tree didn’t get cursed like the fig tree. And it appears in the Song of Solomon, as the (date) palm tree. And I like palm trees. So the dates have my vote.

Maybe we can learn a bit about biblical flora here.

On another note, I’ve been leaving off the news invitation. Felt like a voice in the wilderness that nobody heard.
