"Ripe vegetables were magic to me.  Unharvested, the garden bristled with possibility.   I would quicken at the sight of a ripe tomato, sounding its redness from deep amidst the undifferentiated green.  To lift a bean plant's hood of  heartshaped leaves and discover a clutch of long slender pods handing  underneath could make me catch my breath. Michael Pollan"
