Most people have never eaten rutabagas, and probably wouldn't recognize one if it were accidentally plopped into the grocery cart. The rutabaga is related to turnips and the like, and in fact the resemblance is in taste as well as appearance.
EXPOSED PROBLEMS SHOULD SPELL THE END TO SHALE GAS (News from Canada about an issue affecting the Arkansas Ozarks) - by Jim Emberger

From the Arkansas Ozarks..
Anyone who has ever seen Oyster Mushrooms will probably recall their unique habit of growing in a cascade along a tree trunk, in a upward or downward direction, depending one one's point of view. One mass of them I observed for several consecutive years grew on a dead or dying sycamore tree.
This is one mushroom, according to experts, that is almost impossible to confuse with any poison variety, however, I still do not recommend anyone gathering or collecting them based on an online mention. Always be certain of what you collect before ingesting it/them.
The common bean, Phaseolus vulgaris, is one of the most common vegetables grown by the home gardener. There is quite a wide variety in beans, and this particular article is about "green beans", which is a rather general term itself. Almost any variety of common bean can be harvested while still small, tender, and green, or can be allowed to dry on the vine for later harvest as dry pods, containing dried bean seeds. If one wants seeds for the following year, then green beans are allowed to mature into dry pods full of dry beans.
