Yum!! Serious garden growing--and what a pretty composition of the bounty.
Seems to me quite a few people are a little bit confused about what is and isn't a vegetable... but we don't care, do we?They're all beautiful.
Richard these are all vegetables me thinks- Round courgette, carrots, celery, Aubergine (egg fruit), tomatoes, green peppers, yellow courgettes, red chili and green chili and yet another aubergine. Diane
Beautiful selection and arrangment.
Carrots and celery are veg, the rest are all fruit. ;-)
They all look like vegetables to me, but what do I know ;-) Great collection.
OK so you are right Richard. To me they are all vegetables but -Simply put, a fruit is the ovary of a plant, which means that it may contain seeds, while a vegetable is a plant part, which does not contain seeds, although some vegetables may be used in plant reproduction.Some examples of fruits include well-known specimens like apricots, cherries, blueberries, and apples, but tomatoes, pumpkins, cucumbers, and zucchini are also considered to be fruits botanically, even though many people refer to these fruits as “vegetables” because they are savory, rather than sweet. This is the result of convenience labeling used in the grocery industry, where fruits and vegetables are differentiated on the basis of whether they are sweet or savory, rather than with the use of any firm botanical criteria.A vegetable, on the other hand, is simply a plant part like a flower, stem, root, or leaf. Broccoli, for example is a vegetable which appears in the form of a flower, while celery is a stalk vegetable, and celeriac is a root vegetable. Vegetables like potatoes are technically tubers, not roots, meaning that they are specially designed plant structures which store nutrients for the parent plant; tubers are also capable of budding into new plants. Some examples of leaf vegetables include spinach, cabbage, and lettuce.The difference between fruits and vegetables should be fairly clear now; basically, if it has seeds, it's a fruit, and if it doesn't, it's a vegetable. However, there are some interesting little facts about fruit which may interest you; for example, all nuts are technically fruits, in addition to being classified as nuts, because they are plant ovaries. In the case of nuts, instead of eating the fleshy casing which surrounds the seed, we eat the seed. Grains are also fruits, because they are simply oversized seeds.
k.....I eat ovaries.*shuddering*I think I'll stick with a good cuppa coffee.If that's technically an ovary....do NOT tell me. :-/LOLOL
Mel it is all way over my head, yes it seems we eat ovaries!!!!
Mel - you don't drink that posh Civet coffee do you?
