Re: Scavenger hunt

Purdue is pretty good for food information, Jim.  I've seen the New Crops
page b4 and it is interesting, even though I don't 'do' food.
Even though I don't grow much of anything in common with you, I enjoy it
when you post something like this that sends me looking.  I like helping
others out and I enjoy research.  I may never use the info, but it's fun to
come across something interesting like your whortleberry, a chance to learn
something new.  I may forget it soon afterward, but if the subject comes up
again later, I can often recall having come across it and can sometimes even
retrieve it.
