Which vegetable spearheads the writing of a poem?

Steamed or roasted. Plain or in the the company of --

asparagus salad with shrimp & almonds & olive oil & black pepper & lemon & tomatoes (if they be ripe) & depending upon the season either fuyu persimmons or manila mangoes

    But a cousin of the purveyor worked at the embassy
    and reported the doldrums darkening the ancient city
    at a time when seasons beckoned joy and plenty
    so she naturally became concerned

    After all, it was time to sell her finest fruits and olives
    and the city's welfare correlated directly with her own
    so she set out to see for herself
    what this business of the letter was all about
