what’s going on out there?

Fall clean-up is a time when getting right up close to our plants reveals all sorts of oddities.

Like Tom, the overexcited tomato. I guess if one had a less lascivious mind, it might be thought to resemble a boxing glove.

Not to belabor the subject, but get a load of the baby bump on this lemon cucumber.

The kiwi vine tied itself into a perfect lovers’ knot. Now I KNOW that had I tried to get it to do that it would have refused to cooperate. Endlessly fascinating, these gardens of ours, wouldn’t you say?

    Always nice to see a happy tomato… One of these years I’ll try growing veggies into molds like they’ve been doing in parts of Italy for generations.

    James~Oh! That reminds me of square watermelons in the news a while back. Better for shipping, I guess, but that idea failed to get off the ground. Nature does win a round every once in a while.

    What fun! I like that baby bump!

  4. ricki Says:

    Jane~And what have your plants been up to while your back was turned?

  5. Grace Says:

    Too funny, Ricki. I think veggies must have their own little personalities.

  6. ricki Says:

    Grace~Garden plot cut-ups, just like in junior high.

    omg! I can’t believe that tomato!
