    I find that the tastiest part of an aubergine is near the stem. Does anybody else have any observations that hardly seem worth sharing about vegetables?

    It's easy (and VERY uncomfortable) to choke on the strings in celery.

    Syd Barrett had deep insight into vegetable being.

    Vegetable Man

    In yellow shoes I get the blues,
    So I walk the street with my plastic feet
    with blue velvet trousers make me feel pink
    Theres a kind of stink about blue velvet trousers
    In my paisley shirt, I look a jerk,
    and my turquoise waistcoat is quite outta sight.
    But oh, oh, my haircut looks so bad....
    Vegetable man! Where are you?
    So I change my gear, and I bugger my knees
    and I cover them up with the latest cuts
    My pants and socks are all in a box
    It does take long to find darn old socks
    The watch, black watch, my watch
    with a black face and a date in a little hole
    and all the luck, its what I got,
    Its what I wear, Its what you see,
    It must be me, Its what I am!
    Vegetable man! Where are you?
    Ah, ah ah ah, ah ah ah Hah, ah ah ah, ah ah ah - oh!
    I've been looking all over the place for a place for me
    But it ain't anywhere
    It just ain't anywhere.
    Vegetable man, Vegetable man, Vegetable man. Vegetable man, Vegetable man, Vegetable man,
    He's the kind of fella you just gotta see if you can, Vegetable man.

    I find celery to be the most suitable vegetable for a afternoon snack
    involving freshly squeezed lime, grain salt, and chili powder.

    We can't talk about vegetables in the Culture forum without mentioning this song:

    If you brought a big brown bag of them home
    I'd jump up and down and hope you'd toss me a carrot

    I didn't even think of it, but you are right, it definitely belongs here.

    Bigger is not better.
    Tomatoes are not vegetables and are very easy to grow.
    Supermarket vegies could've been there since a couple of a seasons ago.
    Aubergines are also called eggplants and taste pretty crap,unless done right.
    Celeries take more energy to chew and digest than they actually give you.
    A vegetarian diet is way more beneficial to the planet that a meat one.
    There are also way less chance of getting germs,etc. from vegetables in your kitchen than meat. If you do have to eat meat get a glass chopping board-they are the only ones that can be cleaned properly.
