Beets are deadly serious

"The beet is the most intense of vegetables. The radish admittedly, is more feverish, but the fire of the radish is a cold fire, the fire of discontent not of passion. Tomatoes are lusty enough, yet there runs through tomatoes an undercurrent of frivolity. Beets are deadly serious"..."The beet is the melancholy vegetable, the one most willing to suffer. You can´t squeeze blood out of a turnip"...
