The results of the 4th Annual Weird Veggie and Funny Fruit contest are in!
I enjoy growing quality produce, but I also have an affinity for crazy-looking fruits and vegetables. That’s why I sponsor an annual gardening contest that gives gardeners a chance to show off their surprising finds. This year’s contest included entries from as far away as Perth, Australia.
Geri Koncilja, our intrepid gardening aficionado, wrote riddles to commemorate each of the top entries this year. I’m sure you’ll enjoy them as much as I did.
The contest winner for 2012 is Angel Lime grown by Jason Wold of Campbell, Calif.
Q: What did the bartender say to the lime angel sitting on the rim of a margarita glass?
A: Hallelujah and pass the salt!
Second place goes to Emma May Hunter of Tellico Plains, Tenn., for her Eggplant with Ears.
Q: What do you get when you cross an eggplant with a sheep?
A: A really bbbaaaaaaadd combination.
Third place, also submitted by Jason Wold, is Smiling Tomato.
Thanks again to all the gardening fans who helped promote the contest through Facebook and Twitter…and to all the gardeners who entered this year’s contest!
