@PolkaDot  Hi Dot.  Yes it is the chicory that you can make into coffee.  It is all in the plant's roots.  You take the roots and chop them up and then you roast them for awhile, then grind them up into grain form and there you have it, ready for the coffee pot.  Chicory doesn't contain caffeine, so, like you say, lots of people will mix it half and half with regular ground coffee.  I noticed that ground chicory can be purchased online.  There are many unproven health benefits to chicory.  Here is an interesting article....

Nice! I really enjoy Chicory in my coffee. We have a local place that serves it https://www.luciles.com/.
There was a little girl,
            Who had a little curl,
Right in the middle of her forehead.
            When she was good,
            She was very good indeed,
But when she was bad she was horrid.

Normally I can perceive objects in clouds, but not this time I thought.  But then I saw the side profile of a dog's head, starting with it's nose to the left of the cloud.

Beginning to see some strange sights around the EllGab neighborhood.  Must be that time of year.

A couple of weeks later this fence was built next to them.

At @PolkaDot 's command here are a couple of photos from the garden.
1. Sea Island red peas drying on the vine and almost ready to pick.
2. A row of Dragon Tongue beans, Broccoli, Green Mustard, Spanish Black Radishes with some of the Thai eggplant @GravitySucks told us about in the background.
Merry Christmas

Just when I was thinking that I hadn't seen a robin this past year, one showed up in my birdbath.

Nicely done @JUAN !!
See? Now we're ALL happy.
There was a little girl,
