41 Facts about Vegetables

(YouTube link)

My garden is overrun with 90 tomato plants and 18 pepper plants this year. I’ve eaten a couple of tomatoes already, so I’m into vegetables right now. There’s always something new to learn about the bounty of the earth, so sit back and learn something about vegetables from John Green in the latest episode of the mental_floss List Show.

I found carrots hard to grow in a backyard. The soil has to be deep and completely rock-free, they take a long time, and I don't care for that much bending over at my age.

The work in canning is worth it for preserving the superior taste of homegrown vegetables. But it also spoiled me and my family from enjoying the taste of commercially-canned food and out-of-season produce.

I'm envious of your canning skills. That's a lot of work!
I think it was here I first read that carrots used to be purple. We tried to grow some of the modern purple variety a couple of years ago with mild success (probably wrong soil). It was a fun experiment, though.
