Reading snippet: vegetable despair

September 8, 2007

Barbara Kingsolver writes, about asparagus, “Then you have to wait three years for a harvest. A too-young plant gets discouraged when you whack off its every attempt to send up new shoots in the spring, abuse that will make the plant sink into vegetable despair and die.” (Animal, Vegetable, Miracle, pg 28.)
