@pawian, yes, this summer in Poland is defenitely "exotic" enough ;/ ☀️☀️☀️🤯

I will be driving next to that place next week and will take a better photo.

I can take a wild guess until then - are those foundations for road noise barriers?

Not quite. They are sort of foundation for sth else.
OK, now I am going to retrieve the deleted photos to find a better one coz I can`t keep you waiting. :):):)

BTW, did you notice I added another plant riddle in 1288???????????

Yes! Congrats. :):):)
So, it seems Polish men are as good as Polish women. :):):)

I retrieved the photo of the old tram track sleepers as you called them.

@Alien, well done :))

Yes, but I don't know what this is... Is it just a plant or also a veg?

Is it just a plant or also a veg?

A wild plant which became popular as certain kind of food at the end of 18th century. :):):) At the beginning it wasn`t treated as veg coz it was processed too much. Today it can be used as veg, too.

Mind the flowers! I still remember the pictures of them in my primary school biology textbooks.

ohyeah

xD

I had to do some research - my grandma has never grown chicory in her garden :))

At the beginning it wasn`t treated as veg coz it was processed too much.

What was it used for in the past?

And this???

No idea, but the leaves look interesting... Is it a fruit or a veg?

The root after grinding was used as a substitute of coffee. Kawa zbożowa - mówi to Panu coś??? hahaha

Is it a fruit or a veg?

This time it is fruit. :):):) Also exotic but grows well and sometimes bears fruit in our climate in warm years.

Haha... I think I know what this is... ;D

But maybe I'll let others guess...

Hint: those leaves were used in sculpture for human figures ;)

I see, thanks for the info :))

They look a bit like very young figs.

That would also fit with Paulina's hint...

Excellent!!
I was flabbergasted seeing them today coz the fig tree starts growing its fruit in May. The one in the photo looks like born in July. Amasing!

with Paulina's hint..

Fig leaves to cover nudity. :):):)

What is this stuff???

Man made climate change probably. In northern England thee are apples on the tree at Christmas. That was impossible only a few years ago. Here in Africa you don't even want to know what it's like.

No idea about the food on the plate but it looks strangely nice.

Yup, the so called "listek figowy" in Polish (fig leaf) :)))

What is this stuff???

Cauliflower covered with roux?

Wow, a magnificent guess again!! :):):)
oops, what is roux? I don`t know French as well as Cojest.

It is not about French but about cooking, you brag about your cooking a lot and you don't know what it is? lol!

Darling, roux looks and sounds French. And it is a French derivative from Latin. I know English, not French. You know French coz you lived in New Orleans.

you don't know what it is? lol!

Yes, darling, I am strong enough to admit that I don`t know something. :):):) Are you able to do it, too???? I highly doubt it. hahahaha

zasmażka

Btw, cauliflower with roux is yummy, I like it a lot ;d

While I always reject it if boiled, with roux or without. Only raw cauilflower is palatable (thanks, Atch :):):) ).

In this case zasmażka with butter.

re you able to do it, too

Sure but I don't need to do it on this forum.

I've never eaten it raw, I think, only boiled :)

What about this???

Hmm, don't know... Are you keeping something warm?

Of course. I knew it so you are excused. Do it on another forum where nobody reads you. :):):)

hihihihi sorry, no. :):):):)

I'm no fan, but try boiling it whole. Just make a cross with a knife on the base. It doesn't take long to boil; it should still be firm.

No difference to me coz I prefer things all dente or crispy. The only exception I make for soft veg is in soups. That is why boiled cauliflower or broccoli are useless to me on the main course dish plate.

I'm a bit the same. I used to work on an Italian oil camp and the canteen used to boil veg to a mush to suit Italian tastes. Really horrible.

Things like courgettes are nicer hardly boiled at all or just raw and marinaded.

Yuk! Błe! Barf! Rzyg! :):)

Hmmm... let me think .....
