    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.

      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!

    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. :   )

    Though I may be knowing the names of many vegetables, naming 20 of them undertwo minutes sounds a bit difficult.

    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.

    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.
