Mister D: Screw Â eating vegetables! Â Who knew they could be so profitable!

Last night the old masters up for auction at Sothebyâ€™s on York Avenue were heirloom vegetables. And they brought in more than $100,000 to support local farming programs.
â€œIâ€™ve never sold some of these things,â€ said Jamie Niven, the auctioneer, who added that he had presided over more than 600 charity auctions. â€œIâ€™m amazed.â€
