11 Facts about Vegetables

11 Facts about Vegetables

When I was a child, I hardly ever ate vegetables. I remember my mother eating a salad and of course, I had to taste what she was eating. The salad was very tasty and since then, I enjoy eating salads.

Grandma was notorious for making sure my brother and I ate our turnip greens (not my favorite at the time), but now I enjoy greens and it doesn’t matter what kind.

I thought it would be fun to list a few things that I know about vegetables. Feel free to take part in this exercise.
