A Love That Will Never Wilt

The last time one of Reading’s racing vegetables appeared on this blog was when Cauliflower endured a humbling clothesline takedown courtesy of Jerry “The King” Lawler.

I am worried that I may be neglecting other stories in the field of vegetable betrothal and vertically-striped theme jersey celebrations. Please get in touch with info pertaining to these subjects, as well as info pertaining to just about anything else. I want it all.
