In the radish family... the Dancer King daikon has been known to raise a few eyebrows. Likes heavy shade.

In the past, I've been fascinated by the rare, exotic, Ram In Nylon squash. Home gardeners have shied away from it in recent years, because it grows on a very thorny vine--the vines tend to run everywhere, try to take over the rest of the garden. Like many common weeds, once it has established itself, it's difficult to get rid of.

The squash itself gives off a highly-offensive odor, which must be boiled away. In poorer areas, the boiled vegetable is used to feed dogs, especially the more aggressive breeds. Wolves and wolf-hybrids have occasionally been seen sniffing the vegetable when volunteer patches spring up in the wild.

Corn is not a vegetable.

Unless you're eating the stalk.

Corn is a grain.

Minerals???? Yippee!!!! KRYPTONITE,,,,,,,,,,,,,, Man does that bring back some wild disjointed memories about how me and Indyan Lovestone first met. It was in the 70s. The whole transgender evolution thing comes into play. That should be fair ground since LJW had a question about it today. Geez, I have a few good animal stories too, but not sure how to convey without getting...... "This comment was removed by the site staff for violation of the usage agreement." Aut man, I appreciate the prayers. It's contagious.

I had a pet rock last year. Actually it was a stone. And it wasn't really a pet. It was in my kidney, a real whopper. I never named it but I sure called it a lot of names. Got the remnants in a jar around here somewhere.

Colonel Potter had to be set straight about Klinger, too. Then everything went swimmingly, 'cept for the war, I guess. Maybe it's time to pass that zapper button over to Mr. Dapple for a while, sort of like an interim commissioner.

Just kiddin', sheriff. Please don't send me to the phantom zone!

Well, the new sheriff needs to publicly state his/her new personal guidelines right here, right now, so I know what I can and can't post. Hey Sheriff, there's a regular gang of people on this page who know each other and enjoy good natured fun. If you're gonna do this job without ruining everything, do your research and check the OTS history. Please lighten up, for everybody.

When Jesus came in from playing out in the street this morning I asked if he got the license plate number of the vehicle that left those tire tracks all across his back. He's cool. Said he jumped in front of your car. He likes a little pain and just wanted to have a little fun. He says next time try going 90.

You see, Me and Jesus went to Steve Earle at the Uptown last night and he's still a little hung over and very disillusioned. Been doin stupid stuff all morning. Heard a loud noise coming from the kitchen and Jesus had thrown himself into the garbage disposer. Man I was fumin, he didn't bother to turn the water on and sparks were flyin everywhere. Then He starts in on all the dang windows in the house. Luckily we got lots of visquene and duck tape left over from Y2K. I fixed all the windows but the ones in his room. He is gonna learn his lesson this winter. When Jesus heard Steve say he had a trailer full of guns and then got rid of them all when he found God, well it weren't pretty, it took 10 beers to calm Jesus down. His faith in God has been badly shaken if not totally destroyed. Hypocrites make Jesus puke and the folks in front of us weren't too happy about that but then they turned around and saw it was Jesus puking over what Steve was saying and all was forgiven. Was a waste of good beer though.

Fresh locally grown sugar snap peas. Steam for just two minutes and they are perfect! The haricot verts are really good around here, too. And, what would a sandwich be without a big slice of a home grown tomato.

Hoping next year will be a better year for truck farming since this year was such a stinker.

Got a dozen Sprout Trees out back that are about 4 feet tall and loaded. Like 'em in a crock pot with some cheese sauce and maybe some onions and red peppers and a little fresh garlic. Baby okra doesn't even make it to the house. And yeah, I do like a fresh pink taco in the garden, usually after dark with a beer. Don't knock it till you've tried it.

I love zucchini, especially oven roasted until it is lightly caramelized. Asparagus roasted with parmsean. Garden fresh peas but I haven't had those in ages. My favorite fall veggie is an acorn squash oven roasted with parmesan.

I think the lesson here is that all veggies are better oven roasted and with parmesan. Now I'm hungry!

And, if I run out of some veggies I have a new recipe:

"I take two scoops of Opium (60 grams fast adsorbing ) no flavor - just numbing, mixed with one scoop of C-4, a Claymore mine (pointed towards), and a rigged I.E.D. and one scoop (tumbler) of aged Black Jack in 3d without the 3d glasses (and lots of caffine). All mixed in water - poor slowly. They are somewhat flavored so it does not taste bad." - Idea came from BABBOY.

Have tried it once and it gave a bit of heartburn and flatulence. Will try to refine.

"Brussel Sprouts....in a light butter sauce. Preferrably served with lamb chops and a nice Pinot."

Agreed. That makes me hungry.

There will be those who will try and convince otherwise. They will be the agents of Satan and do not understand the true way and are not those on who I have built my pet rock collection. Let those among you who are without gin buy the first round.

And, fresh red tomatoes. With a hint of salt. Am going to give some slices to BABBOY as a friendly gift and gesture. I get them form North Lawrence..good as GOLD.

OK, BABBOY? I have a secret supplier for these - these - tomatoes. Some are as sweet as apples.

Third.

"I take two scoops of Optimum Hydro whey (60 grams fast adsorbing protein) vanilla flavor, mixed with one scoop of C-4 (creatine, argentine and Vitamin C) and one scoop of Jacked 3d (more creatine, argentine, Beta Alanine and lots of caffine). All mixed in water. They are flavored so it does not taste bad." - Babboy

Not sure if these are vegetable ingredients. Will only use if faced with going without or going to the Merc.

Thanks, BABBOY!! You ROCK!!

My favorite vegetable? I haven't decided yet, either Cheney or Bush... they destroyed the US economy, it will take many years and many Democratic and Republican administrations to pull us out of Dick's carefully targeted tax and spend policies and his deregulation of billionaire buddies in Texas and Saudi Arabia.

And you? You're just the little people. Shut up and get back to work and enjoy the junk food, its all you're going to get.

Second. Taro. A great vegetable.

Litchi Chinensis. Commonly argued as a fruit or vegetable, depending on the context and continent. From the vine I would agree that is a fruit. However, as the seedlings can be grown from the ground with beneficial qualities to the young leaves in a salad etc...this part of the plant could be considered a vegetable by many.
