Cool photos, thanks! The last time I had anything that oddly shaped was when I grew Husky Red tomatoes. Every once in a while, they put out a double tomato.

BTW, those are lovely red tomatoes you've got there!

Great pics, HP! Those peppers are really neat, I've never seen that before.

Tell me about the carrots. I think I got more weird ones than normal ones last year :roll:

G5 this is the first time the peppers have done that, I so had to laugh, DH calls them Richard Nixon peppers lol! The carrots this year have behaved them selves so far, we'll just have to wait and see.

I'm sure you'll get at least one odd one to add to your album...it seems like everyone does. I didn't even do carrots this year (poor experience last year and more onions and peppers this year). I'll probably give them a go again next year; I just can't stand knowing that there's a crop that I haven't grown successfully.

Harvest time is just starting to come on for some of us, so we'll have to wait and see what comes about. I'm sure that there will be quite a few oddball vegs this season.

It looks like you have a combination of radial and concentric cracking. I've mostly been having trouble with concentric cracking (the circles).

Those carrotts are to die for.

You could put faces on them and prop them up for photos. I know how much work you put into your gardening so I am sure you don't have that kind of time, but that photo was great.
I love this! - There can be no other occupation like gardening in which, if you were to creep up behind someone at their work, you would find them smiling.

You must have some hard ground, Jal, or at least a lot of stones.

I'm just teasin, I've seen the photos of your good ones and they blow mine out of the water (soil). I had so many of those funny ones last year, that I just skipped carrots all together this year and went with more peppers, which I think was a pretty good move.

Jal, that has to be one of the neatest toms I've ever seen! It looks like you could stand it on end and spin it like a top :lol:.

Is this one of yours from this year? What's really great is it -- they? -- is already blushed and is sure to ripen. :D

Neither the carrots nor the tom came out of my garden. I just happened to have the camera handy at the riight moment. The carrots were grown on hard ground.

Like I said, I've seen your carrots, Jal, and I did find it hard to believe that you got so many scragles like those....your garden is just too good! :lol:.

Stella, you're right! I'm not sure it it would float, though.

I can't take credit for this one as I happened to come across the pic online and thought of this thread....I just had to post it. After all, no one said the veggies had to come from our garden, right? :lol:.

I'm still waiting for someone to post a pic of one of those squashes that is the result of a double flower....those are always a sight.

I think we should make it a rule, where it has to be naturally funny/oddly shaped, no carving (though growing-environment "tweaking" is allowed) :wink:.

Yep, I'm afraid so, Apps.

So are these carrots. [img]https://www.evernewrecipes.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/02/carrot-water-lettuce-carving.jpg[/img]

However, this carrot would be allowed :wink:. [img]https://www.uniquedaily.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/09/five-fingered-carrot.jpg[/img]

Seeing these funny carrots makes me want to go dig mine, we always get a few really funny looking ones. So far of the ones I have dug there are no weird ones.

Re: Funny vegies

Hilarious Gardening Moment --

...when a HEART-shaped potato tumbled out of the ground and I was immediately giggling uncontrollably like a crazy person in the garden because I was already imagining everyone's reactions when I posted its picture on the forum later.

...especially since some of you are more likely to insist on looking at it this way or that way... :>
