I knew it! Well, that part about them being spaghetti sprouts, anyway:-) [takes modest bow]

Well, Check, you're right..these are little spaghetti seedlings....they'll be set out into the fields as soon as the danger of frost has past, and will grow into mature spaghetti plants by mid summer, when the harvest takes place..there's nothing like being in Italy during the great spaghetti harvests,...baskets of it are brought in fresh from the fields and prepared in great boiling cauldrons..families gather around, and there's a lot of wine drinking,mandolin and accordian playing, and dancing...most of the harvest is, of course, dried on racks before being shipped to market ...the only thing I can think of that compares to the spaghetti harvest is when the lasagna trees are ready to be picked...

I've always wondered where spaghetti comes from. This explains why, when you get your spaghettis out of the box, some of them have little crooks at the end. These don't look like full-grown spaghettis, though. Probably just sprouts.
