Carrots
Potatoes
Winter squash

But in the summer when I can grow things:

Organic beets and their greens--they're sweet if you add bonemeal at planting time
Heirloom tomatoes

Only peas, carrots and potatoes? Is it true what they say about English food, or is that all you like?

I don't know what they say about English food? Having unhealthy diets is it?

Most frequently -

We use a mirepoix of sautéed onion, celery and carrots almost daily. The flavor it adds as a base to almost any dish is indescribably delicious.

Another vegetable I don't like but wish I did -- beets. To me they taste like dirt. I know I must be preparing them wrong. Any ideas?

Ok, maybe you are just genetically programmed to not like them. If you cut them into chunks, place them on a baking sheet, sprinkle with salt, and drizzle them with olive oil to coat, and bake at 425 degrees until tender. NOW, if you don't like them, then that's OK, its not your fault.

There are a lot of people who do not like the sweetest vegetables, like carrots, sweet potatoes, beets, parsnips, etc. which to most of us does not make sense at all.
