    That may be carrying the love for life a little too far.

    Just nuts, grains & legumes? Or would fruit count? It’s kind of like an egg sack.

    There are some people (Fruitarians) who only eat what just falls to the ground; eg; nuts, fruits, seeds; not harming any plants.

    No difference, botanically, between some legumes and fruit….


    That whole tomato-is-a-fruit thing is a crock….


    Botanically, a tomato is a fruit …

    It’s a berry…. and so is a banana, or an eggplant, or an avocado.


    Anything formed from the ovaries or fertilised ovum ( is a botanical fruit….
    a botanical vegetable is from the “vegetative”, or growing parts, like stems and leaves.


    We don’t use the botanical terms to talk about culinary use.


    If Agnes wants to eat only the “eggs” she can grow peas and corn and tomatoes and peppers…
    watermelon and cucumbers…
    but not lettuce or celery or basil.

    It’s all good – except maybe for the eggplant – don’t like eggplant.
    These kids are so cute – love their thought processes.

    To know that a tomato is a fruit is intelligence. To know not to use it in a fruit salad is wisdom…

    To claim catsup is a vegetable is dumb….

    It really just depends on your imagination.
    -
    The red fruit eaten may have been the pomegranate. A fruit they would have been aware of back then.
    -
    Did you recall that the other tree—Tree of Immortality as the one other thing Adam and Eve if they had eaten that fruit would have become immortal they would have been called “gods?”

    so we can have a salad made of peas, corn, (would scarlet runners do as well?) tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers …. and….. Watermelon! (I think pumpkin and squash also fall into this group?)

    I think any microbes they swallowed would survive.

    If their own microbes are strong they will survive.
