Reader Questions That Whole ‘Dirt Candy’ Thing

Grub Street Reader, over IM: Did you write about that Dirt Candy restaurant yet?
Grub Street: Yeah
Reader: Did you mention how retarded this statement on their website is? "What is dirt candy? Vegetables, of course. When you eat a vegetable you’re eating nothing more than dirt that’s been transformed by plenty of sunshine and rain into something that’s full of flavor — candy from the dirt. Dirt Candy."
Reader: Vegetables are nothing more than dirt transformed.
Reader: What about seeds?
Reader: Just a little thing that irked me.
