Got this from a friend who doesn't garden... but it does mention  
veggies! Thought you all might enjoy it.

> NEVER HEARD CREATION EXPLAINED THIS WAY BEFORE !!!
>
> In the beginning, God created the Heavens and the Earth and  
> populated the Earth with broccoli, cauliflower and spinach, green  
> and yellow and red vegetables of all kinds, so Man and Woman would  
> live long and healthy lives.
>
> Then using God's great gifts, Satan created Ben and Jerry's Ice  
> Cream and Krispy Kreme Donuts. And Satan said, 'You want chocolate  
> with that?'
>
> And Man said, 'Yes!' and Woman said, 'and as long as you're at it,  
> add some sprinkles.' And they gained 10 pounds. And Satan smiled.
>
> And God created the healthful yogurt that Woman might keep the  
> figure that Man found so fair. And Satan brought forth white flour  
> from the wheat, and sugar from the cane and combined them. And  
> Woman went from size 6 to size 14.
>
> So God said, 'Try my fresh green salad.' And Satan presented  
> Thousand-Island Dressing, buttery croutons and garlic toast on the  
> side. And Man and Woman unfastened their belts following the repast.
>
> God then said, 'I have sent you heart healthy vegetables and olive  
> oil in which to cook them.' And Satan brought forth deep fried fish  
> and chicken-fried steak so big it needed its own platter. And Man  
> gained more weight and his cholesterol went through the roof.
>
> God then created a light, fluffy white cake, named it 'Angel Food  
> Cake,' and said, 'It is good.' Satan then created chocolate cake  
> and named it 'Devil's Food.'
>
> God then brought forth running shoes so that His children might  
> lose those extra pounds. And Satan gave cable TV with a remote  
> control so Man would not have to toil changing the channels. And  
> Man and Woman laughed and cried before the flickering blue light  
> and gained pounds.
>
> Then God brought forth the potato, naturally low in fat and  
> brimming with nutrition. And Satan peeled off the healthful skin  
> and sliced the starchy center into chips and deep-fried them. And  
> Man gained pounds.
>
> God then gave lean beef so that Man might consume fewer calories  
> and still satisfy his appetite. And Satan created McDonald's and  
> its 99-cent double cheeseburger. Then said, 'You want fries with  
> that?' And Man replied, 'Yes! And super size them!' And Satan said,  
> 'It is good.' And Man went into cardiac arrest.
>
> God sighed and created quadruple bypass surgery.
>
> Then Satan created HMOs.
