If you judge a vegetable’s worth by how big it gets, the pumpkin is the hands-down winner. Have you ever tried to pick a big one up out of the field, only to mutter, “This thing weighs a ton” Well, pumpkins can weigh a ton.

That was before I?even knew what eggplant tasted like; I guess I just liked the deep purple color and the shape of the eggplants on the cotton.
