Pagan News Beagle Earthy Thursday Feb 26, 2015

It's that time of the week again: Earthy Thursday! Read on for stories of edible "smut," birth and death, what to garden in winter, and the smell of rain.

You might not like the idea of eating corn that's been infected with fungus, but in parts of Mexico it's considered a delicacy... and it's apparently quite nutritious!

Winter might not seem the best time grow anything, but there's more than a few plants that thrive during the colder months of the year. The Washington Post has some tips on what to grow and where.

Celebrating the birth of human (and other animal) life is a big part of Paganism but what about the birth of plants? The Mother Nature Network shares a time lapse video of an acorn's transformation into an oak sapling.

On the other hand while birth may be something we celebrate death is something we often fear. To help make the passing of death easier, a new movement has gained momentum known as "death midwives," who seek to "bring death home" the way regular midwives bring birth home.

Lastly, is the smell of rain something that brings you pleasure? Find out where it comes from, courtesy of The Manitoban!

Aryós Héngwis (or the more modest Héngwis for short) is a native of the Pontic-Caspian steppe, born some 5000 years ago, near the village of Dereivka. In his youth he stood out from the other snakes for his love of learning and culture, eventually coming into the service of the local reǵs before moving westward toward Europe. Most recently, Aryós Héngwis left his home to pursue a new life in America, where he has come under the employ of BBI Media as an internet watchdog (or watchsnake, if you will), ever poised to strike the unwary troll.
