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... :>
