Can you name 20 vegetables in under 2 minutes?
On the street that my studio is on, there is a billboard that says, "Can you name 20 vegetables in the next 2 miles?" I think that this is a challenge for many people and wanted to pose the challenge here using 2 minutes instead of miles.
Carrots, broccoli, lettuce, turnip, tomato, cucumber, sprouts, eggplant, squash, zucchini, potato, radish, corn, green beans, sugar snaps, cauliflower, celery, jalapeno, tomatillo, garlic, artichoke, spinach.
I'm surprised to say that I named 22 in 2 minutes. I find it worrisome, however, that it took me a while to think of the last 10 or so. I think that means I need to eat a little healthier.
@jaraven You are worried after getting 22 I think then I should be banging my brains when I got just 17
Great list, @jaraven! 22 is excellent in two minutes! I, too, was a little worried over the last few when I did it. Mmmmm.... artichokes! I'm craving a plate full of delicious steamed vegetable right now!
Let me try this with my timer
Capsicum, Cabbage, Cauliflower, Peas, Onion, Potato, Ginger, Garlic, Okra, Beet root, CARROT, Lettuce, cilantro, spinach, tomato, chilli, squash, almost there I got 17 in two minutes
@mr-veg, Oh, so close!! Great list, though! I struggled a little when I named them when I saw the sign. I wouldn't have thought of beet root
I can rattle off a bunch, but I can't type that fast anymore...
I'll visualize our local market's veggie section: eggplant, red bell pepper, rocoto pepper, habanero pepper, carrot, celery, Romaine lettuce, spinach, Swiss chard, zucchini, green onion, red onion, snap peas, green beans, garlic, radish, sweet potato, beet root, caigua, cucumber. I didn't time myself, so I can't guarantee I did it in under 2 minutes. : )
hmm..asparagus, brocoli, radishes, onions, peas, spinach, lettuce, tomatoes, peppers, cabbage, cauliflower, cucumbers, celery, brussel sprouts, beets, corn, carrots, eggplant, squash, zucchini. I thought of the first few easily but had a problem with the last 3!!! This was fun

I count 23 here-although not all spelled accurately, lol.
BTW-I just visited our community garden earlier today. Fun Question!
Though I may be knowing the names of many vegetables, naming 20 of them undertwo minutes sounds a bit difficult.
No, I can't. It quite hard....will need to take more time for that....can only do it in two minutes if sitting in front of Google....
Being a vegetarian, this should not be so difficult. I am just visualizing the veg compartment in my refrigerator. Here it is..
Carrot, Cucumber, tomato, onion, capsicum, okra, potato, eggplant, garden peas, beet, spinach, radish, pumpkin, cabbage, cauliflower, celery, french beans, sweet potato, turnip, broccoli, zucchini
That was great exercise for the mind.
Yes, did it! Thanks for the challenge. Gets me ready for playing Scattergories.
Let my try,onion,tomato,potato,carrot,radish,cucumber,turnip,beetroot,beans,cauliflower,brochli,spinach,lettuce,mushroom,pumpkin,ladies finger,chillies,capsicum,bittergourd,eggplant.
I saw this question on a billboard...I hope you people aren't answering this while driving lol
Not too hard, I think-- I have had a vegetable garden for years and at one time I think I had at least 18 different things growing at one time.
It's a good exercise though--- sometimes we get stuck with only four or five favorites in our menus. Think outside the lot.
