"e;How can a vegetable be 'rude'?"e; Talia wonders, when she mis-hears her grandmother asking her to gather "e;root"e; vegetables for a Rosh Hashanah stew. As Talia digs in the garden, she collects the twisted, ornery carrots and parsnips-the "e;rude"e; vegetables that she thinks her grandmother wants-and finds a good home for the rest.
