One of the most interesting things we’ve noticed in the garden is just how many of the plants are covered (and I do mean covered) in tiny hairs. I’m not a plant biologist so I’m not sure what purpose this fur serves, but I am sure there is some greater purpose behind it.

Have you noticed this, too? Can anyone enlighten us on why this exists?
