Weird Veggie and Funny Fruit Gardening Contest

Welcome to the fifth annual Weird Veggie and Funny Fruit gardening contest sponsored by

Weird Veggie Snail CukeLate summer means it’s time to harvest prize-winning tomatoes, perfect peaches and a bonanza of beautiful vegetables.

It’s also the time of the gardening year when Mother Nature’s sense of humor shows through and she puts noses on eggplants, pants on carrots and smiles on tomatoes.

The 5th annual Weird Veggie and Funny Fruit contest is on!

I want to see the wackiest vegetables or craziest fruit you find in your garden or at the farmer’s market. Just take a look at the Snailcumber I found in my garden this morning.
