    noooooooooo, avocadoes were beaten! :( (I console myself with two thoughts: 1. I LOVE corn, and 2. Brussels sprouts made the Elite Eight!!!)

    I can’t believe that chard and bok choy didn’t advance! But, I don’t have the same prejudice against leeks that the tournament organizers seem to have, so… (Heather– you’ll have to have Chad’s Leek and Potato Soup.)

    The Heirloom Tomatoes and Corn matchup is a tough one! Ah well, at least it will be worth watching.
