I have a degree in Linguistics, but I work as a programmer. Most of my expertise about English is self-taught, plus lots of random trivia I've acquired here and there.

comment Why are my carrots white in the center?
The core doesn't bother me--as I said, the carrots taste great. But this is one of the wide-shouldered varieties, and I guess that this variety just sometimes turns out white in the center.

comment How do I grow rhubarb in hot weather
It makes me very sad to think that there are parts of the country where people can't grow rhubarb, where the grocers don't even know what rhubarb is.
