The first subject of my current project was celery. A much maligned vegetable, at least by me:

Long leafy green stocks
Oh Miserable celery
Juicy nothingness

A favourite among dieters as food that is [questionably] promoted as a “negative-calorie food”, I find that unless properly prepared the long fibres that run its length present both challenges to eating, and discomfort after, as often they choose to make their home between my teeth. Yet, I do appreciate the taste they add to chicken soup and spaghetti sauce or as the protagonist in a celery soup.

But may be I discount this vegetable more than I should because within it lies a recursion, a hidden beauty, a fearful symmetry … What immortal hand or eye, Could frame thy fearful symmetry? (William Blake, The Tyger).
