John's niece (the one who knows all the big words) is famous in our family for saying "Mom, can I have more broccoli?" We will be lucky if our kids take after me in the veggie dept.

And John accuses you of being a pickey eater. Very curious.

When I was in KS I asked Atticus what his favorite food was and he said broccoli. When we went shopping he also had to have that dyecot sp? in his cart to buy. He even knew it was a dyecot, and I had no idea what it was. After sampleing it though he said it made his throat itchy was it? So cute.

John just prefers his veggies cooked. I like them any way.

Daikon. He loves the idea of diakon (a Japanese radish), but not the reality.

Roy used to be the same way. For some reason he loved the idea of daikon, so he grew them to give to a friend who would eat them. He grew a lot of things that weren't really practical just because he liked the sound of them or something. Like peanuts.

Peanuts?!? Wow. Did you ever eat them?

Remember how we used to grow loofah? I was thinking about that the other day. How weird!

Peanuts: Yes. We never got very many. I made 1/4 cup of the freshest, most wonderful peanut butter once though.
Loofas: Leonard grew them one year to make Christmas gifts for the aunts. Was that ever a weird vine!

Never heard of loofa, but looked it up on google. Guess I have seen them in Bath and Body Works types of stores. Didn't know those "sponges" could be grown in a garden. Cool.
