Veggie tales

A tale of two veggies....It was the best of veggies, it was the worst of veggies.

It was the best of veggies is by ypsi~dixit. She is growing an indoor vegetable garden, that she says is her
assigned project this month for the sustainability group. I have two big tomato plants in pots, one with a wee tomato, a pot full of sprouting beans five inches tall, a windowbox full of radish sprouts, and my Bio-Dome also full of radish sprouts. Plus a pea-pot which is just starting to sprout.

These guys are sitting by my sunny south window in my office, right behind me. They amaze me. I had no idea you could defy the dictates of Nature and git things a-sproutin' in...October.
Hopefully we'll get another update when they are ripe for the pickin'.

It was the worst of veggies is by Kitchen Chick. She explores the world of eating eggplant (yucky, ick, poo!). But, after reading this description and recipe, I too might be converted into an eggplant lover. Kitchen Chick gives us hope when she writes:
I used to dislike eggplant for no other reason that as a kid I thought it was one of those foods one was supposed to dislike. Maybe I have a bad eggplant experience hiding in my past that I can't remember. That's okay - I feel no need to recover any such childhood memories of horror.
She not only got over her dislike, but enjoyed eating in in restaurants and finally cooked it for herself recently. She concludes the post with a recipe (Fried Eggplant with honey, mint and sesame seeds) and this comment:
(You know what they say: "if you don't like it deep-fried, you'll never like it at all..")
Well put!
