jkath, don't worry about starting a debate that is what makes life interesting. It would be a pretty boring life if we all agreed all the time. Keep up the great polls, they are fun!!

I never said what my favorite veggie is. I voted for peppers because of their versatility. What else can you add to stir-fries, put in salsa, add to a frittata, give color to a salad, etc. I had a hard time deciding between them and the root vegetables. Onions are a staple in my house.

And, have you ever chopped up a really sweet yellow pepper and added vidalias and strawberries? It's a great relish for chicken! (and it makes for a pretty presentation)

OH! I forgot my favorite! I went with roots, because:
A. Potatoes, carrots and onions are so good with any meat
B. I love carbs and eat them.....and eat them.....and eat them.....

Auntdot, too funny!

A day's harvest...

I love most vegetables. I'm not supposed to eat some of them (anything green and leafy--I love spinach!, corn, broccoli, beets, carrots, beans) but I can't give them up completely! No matter what category they really fall in, tomatoes and avocados are used as vegetables, and I love them both. I eat onions in just about everything, and I love potatoes any way, shape, or form. The only vegetables I really don't like are greens (except spinach and beet greens), turnips, and rutabagas.

Barbara, I just discovered rutabagas last year and fell in love! Turned a friend on to them recently. Boiled & smashed with a little butter ... pure heaven!

crew & bucky, if it makes you feel any better that photo was actually taken in early May. My harvest is just about done! Between the heat, stinkbugs, and birds, there's not much left worth harvesting. I'll be pulling most of the plants within the next couple weeks.
