Fun Veggies

Leave a comment

When harvesting vegetables in the garden, it is always fun to come across a veggie that has grown in an interesting way. Over the summer, I found many pairs of summer squash or cucumbers that had attached themselves together while growing, causing a “double veggie.” This eggplant, however, was by far the most fun vegetable that I found all season. I was harvesting the eggplant one day, of which there were a lot, and all of a sudden came across this little guy, just waiting to be picked! His little green cap and long nose gave him such personality. I was tempted to draw a face on him, but decided he looked pretty complete just in his natural state. It was a fun little addition to the day.
