“Some like carrots, others like cabbage”

"Some like carrots, others like cabbage” is allegedly a gardening cliché to show that people have different tastes. The supposed proverb is cited in print from only 2006.

You can’t squeeze blood out of a turnip. A place in the sun.  Stone cold sober.  There may be snow on the roof, but there’s fire in the belly. You say potayto, I say potahto. That’s a whole new can of worms.  There is always next year.  Wet behind the ears. Treat him like dirt. Tastes like chicken.  Your all washed up. Watered down. The sun will shine into our yard to.  Some like carrots others like cabbage.

Rough as a cob. Raking in the dough. Rough as a cob. Survival of the fittest. Sow much, reap much; sow little, reap little. Some like carrots others like cabbage.
