A Honey Locust Seed Sprouting – Time Lapse Video

I’m adding honey locust trees to our food forest on the uphill side of the swales. The honey locust fixes nitrogen. It also creates a lot of biomass with its leave drop. The leaves are small and allow a lot of sun through so they are ideal where you don’t want too much shading. They also produce edible seed pods. They are a fast growing trees which can reach very tall heights. I plan to keep them small through pruning.

By providing multiple benefits, the honey locust is a good example of function-stacking in a permaculture system.

This is a very short (11 seconds) time lapse video of a honey locust seed sprouting. It’s my first attempt at capturing plant growth. Pretty cool but I know I can do better. I’m trying another one now that I plan to capture over a couple weeks, so that will be coming soon. For now, check out this first draft.
