Web Finds

Southern Veggies Site
If you're new to the Middle South, or even if you're a native, transplanted New Englander Dr. Rick Snyder's web site, Southern Vegetables and Fruits, from Mississippi State University is a good resource to teach you the language of southern vegetables. This page is full of other great links, too.
