"What are nightshade plants?" My husband is reading a book about arthritis and keeps reading out bits with strange requests to change his diet.
By this time he has read on "Tomatoes, potatoes, eggplants and peppers are not good for arthritis!"
"Really? Not sure about egg plants as never been a fan. But there is lots of vitamins in tomatoes and peppers. Anyway I am sure in moderation they are all fine." These wretched american feel-good books, I must make sure the next one is UK based, but at least he is thinking about doing something about his health.
Gosh,I hope I sounded reassuring - there are stacks of ripening toms and peppers in our poly tunnel! Now is not the time to be a fussy eater.
