today i learned – sun 4th jan 2018

you know those facts where we decide that we’ve been lied to our entire lives?

well, this is going to be another one of those moments peeps πŸ˜…

#tdil that watermelon is the state vegetable of oklahoma πŸ‰

yep … i just called watermelon a vegetable 😳 (this is where the “we’ve all been lied to” bit comes in πŸ˜…). turns out that watermelon is only loosely related to melons … they’re actually more closely related to cucumbers πŸ₯’

for that reason, the kind folk of oklahoma have officially named watermelon a vegetable 😊 (it’s worth noting that watermelon is still considered by most to be a fruit πŸ‘πŸ»)

anyway, being the over-achiever that watermelon is, it didn’t settle for just being declared a vegetable … it went whole hog and became their official state vegetable! 😱

apparently, when the proposal for the bill was put forward in 2007, naming watermelon the state vegetable was actually a pretty landslide victory πŸ˜‚ with 78 votes to 19!

erm, there isn’t much more to say on this if i’m honest πŸ˜… i mean, it’s a fact about watermelon being a state veggie … it’s pretty much in the title πŸ˜‚

ooh! if you’re wondering, the state fruit of oklahoma is the strawberry πŸ“ … that’s a bonus fact for you 😁

right, i’m going to stop rambling and go to bed 😴

much love 😏 #tdil
