20 Photos That Prove You Have No Idea How Food Grows

It’s kind of alarming how little of an idea I have about how food grows. Like, pineapples don’t come from a tree? Does asparagus grow like a creepy worm? It’s terrifying.

I hate it, and I hate learning about it because it challenges my preconceptions.
