Some vegetables that we eat are really fruit.  An example is the tomato.  It is commonly used as a vegetable.

So what is the difference between a fruit and a vegetable.

Can you tell me the names of other fruit that are usually used like a vegetable?

My favorite is Summer Squash.

I usually eat it boiled with onions.  I sometimes eat it raw. I also like it in a casserole.

Here are some songs:

The Vegetable Song

Sung to: "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star"

Carrots, Peas, and Broccoli,
Vegetables are good for me.
For my snack and in my lunch,
Veggie sticks are great to munch.
Carrots, Peas, and Broccoli,
Vegetables are good for me.

The Good Food Song

Sung to: "Old MacDonald Had A Farm"

Vegetables are good for me,
And so I eat them happily,
With a carrot, carrot here,
and a carrot, carrot there
Here a carrot, there a carrot
Everywhere a carrot, carrot.
Vegetables are good for me,


Sung to: "Mary Had a Little Lamb"

We are pumpkins, big and round
Big and round, big and round
We are pumpkins, big and round
Seated on the ground.

We are string beans, green and fine.....
Growing on a vine.
We are onions, round and white....
We make soup taste right.
We are carrots, orange and long...
Help us sing our song.
We are cabbage, green or red....
See our funny head.
We are corn stalks, tall and straight....
Don't we just taste great.

Here is a youtube about National Eat Your Vegetables Day

2 days ago
It is June and fresh rules! Vegetables are the cornerstone of our diets. They provide tons of vitamins and nutrients.

So let's observe National Eat Your Vegetables Day by doing some fun things.  Since  June is National Fresh Fruit and Vegetables Month this is one way to celebrate vegetables.

So in appreciation of the observance of this day, replace some of those snacks with some veggies.

What do you think is the best way to celebrate  "Eat Your Vegetable Day"?  Please share any thing you want, pictures, recipes or tell us how you spent your day!

Maples Trees, while I have not tried eating their leaves  ... it has crossed my mind.  I wonder if they are sweet like maple syrup?  We don't have any growing here so I can't just run out and try them.

Ruth, welcome to permies.

Thank you for sharing about the nebulizer.  Would one of the electric handheld unit be effective?  Which would be better, one with the mask or one with the inhaler?  Or it just a personal preference?

Jocelyn, Thank you for sharing about Rooibos tea.  I put it on my shopping for the next time we go to the big city.

I make my tea in a big jar that I recycled that originally contained salsa. I usually make sun tea.

But here, I don't have a single bean.  ...

You may have deer that are eating them all.  I thought mine were not producing until my husband said the deer were eating them all.

It also may have something to do with male and female plants.
