What If…?

IMG_1291What if wood was edible? Let’s take it a step further. What if wood was not only edible but also delicious? Try to imagine wood not tasting like sawdust but rather something succulent, savory.  If that was the case, if wood was part of our diet, and by diet I don’t mean a restrictive regimen but rather something that might tempt you on a menu, would cows for instance roam free? Would we build our homes with material that could be used for tonight’s dinner? And what about Christmas. Would the family sit down to feast on the evergreen? Who knows, maybe pines aren’t choice edibles.
