    A carrot blight.

    It’s been weeks - maybe months even! - that a poll has been posted where carrots were included. Nobody seems to be offering them, nor has their absence been mentioned heretofore!

    I fear that our required carotenoid intake will not be met in the future. We must right the ship, lest “something else” usurps the throne from our noble carrot!

    You're right but, upon reflection, your post doesn't contain a poll with carrots either. It could easily have been "do you miss the carrots?", or "are carrots on the endangered species list?"

    If you're not part of the solution...

    :D

    This should be a poll, then. Options could include: 1) We have too many carrots, 2) We don't have enough carrots, 3) the carrot ratio is perfect, 4) Carrots.

    I like baby carrots in brown sugared butter. Sure, they may not be the veal parmigiana that the produce aisle attendant promises, but they're good from time to time. Heck, they're not even a solid replacement for a well prepared wienerschnitzel.

    I'd even prefer peas in butter with oregano over most preparations of carrots.

    Carrots are just... fine.

    If your produce aisle attendant promises carrots will taste like veal parmigiana, ask him what he's on and where you can get some! :roflmao:

    (Candied carrots are pretty awesome)

  9. I beg your pardon. Just last week i posted a poll that included “organic carrots” as an option.

    BTW, My wife makes a terrific carrot cake.

    After the carrot blight of 2019, things were pretty bleak. With the loss of their staple crop, bassists were forced into crowded ships headed for far off locales such as TalkAccordion, TalkBagpipe, TalkPennywhistle and TalkTheremin. A quarantine and blockade kept them from landing at TalkSynth and TalkGuitar...

    Why don't we retire the carrot on this site and start to use a new veggie... or fruit... or mineral... or Mos Eisley cantina character?

    Well, it is long past time to take the studded snow tires off it for the summer.

    I remember we once switched to oatmeal. I guess that was just a phase.
