Write a new post in response to today’s one-word prompt
Did anyone else have to look this one up? I’ve never consciously heard the word before, but I had correctly guessed that it’s just all about vegetables.
But wait! There is another meaning, which I find quite interesting:
of or relating to that pole of the ovum or embryo that contains the less active cytoplasm, and frequently most of the yolk, in the early stages of development.
“vegetal cells.” Cells that are kind of just resting while they get ready to get growing with the rest of the embryo.
So I’ve already learned something today. Cool.
