Asparagus grows like this
standing proudly in a line
little do you know
you're a vegetable out of time
my uncle showed me some asparagus growing this very weekend, and we remarked on how awkward they looked.
Grow one per weird pepper thing
goes some way to explaining why they're so expensive.
stupid inefficient plants.
they have to explode it off in a fire
saw it on jimmy's food myths or whatever that program is where they ring the supermarket lines to ask daft questions and then watch prawns get blinded, you know the one
what's weird about that? it's just poking out the ground
they grow on trees.
Coconut trees. But for pineapples.
push pineapple, shake the tree
Looks like if you cut an alien slater open
what do milk cocoa beans look like?
The very same!
I was watching a documentary with Richard Quest on the chocolate supply chain in Africa and they were running their hands through a slimy pile of white beans that were on the way to Nestle. It was weird and gross
that we'll pay more for sprouts on stalks than we will for...detached ones...
dunno if that's a food plant or what, but let's pretend it is
the wall to prevent falling over
getting pretty impatient now - just want my pak choi and basil to hurry up and fucking grow
or green beans in a jam jar so you can SEE THE SCIENCE
do you think this says something about modern life, that people are like "holy shit, this stuff comes out the ground!" ?
If you can't see that you're a fool. It's got no right to grow straight out of the ground by itself. It should be a branch or a root or something
Pomegranates grow on trees? lemons grow on trees? olives grow on trees? Persimmons grow on trees?
'Olives grow on trees with gnarled, fucked up trunks.'
The office Kiwi was talking the other day about a special NZ fruit that you can't get in proper countries. Sounded like 'vag-fruit' but I wasn't really listening. Enlighten me.
Does anyone know what a feijoa is in the UK? Never heard anyone talk about them over here but in NZ that's all anyone ever talks about.
They grow in a conventional manner.
That was it.
Or should that be another thread?
Grows on cows http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/0/0c/Cow_female_black_white.jpg
when cows get sunburnt do they smell tasty?
this is a semi-serious question
that courgettes just go along the top of the ground and have hairs on them!
sounds like you have a very bad uncle
are as soft as your face
with mild green stalks and shit.
