The Loch Ness Cucumber, submitted by Ron Doyle, was the winner in last year’s Weird Veggie and Funny Fruit contest sponsored by WesternGardeners.com.
If it’s August, it’s time for the WesternGardeners.com Weird Veggie and Funny Fruit contest. I hope you’ll join us for some gardening fun.
For the next month, be on the lookout for any odd-looking fruit or vegetables you find in your garden or at a farmer’s market. And I do mean odd.
I’m talking about a potato that looks like Lady Gaga or an eggplant that grew into a work of art.
When you find a crazy veggie or funny fruit, just take a digital picture of it and email it to email@example.com by September 1.
Entries will be judged by someone with a love of gardening and an exceptionally wacky sense of humor.
The winner will be announced on September 7. The contest is open to any gardener in the U.S. or Canada. In addition to the awesome bragging rights, the winner receives a gardener’s gift basket loaded with gardening goodies, including products from Authentic Haven Brand and Aha!Modern Living.
