"It's time to harvest the lettuce harvest early in the morning when the turgor pressure is at its highest that way the leaves will stay crisp. Turgor pressure is like blood pressure for plants."
METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
