So, my garden itself is not very exciting... I battle the squirrels and I try and stay as organic as possible.  We get a drought every year in Delaware, so my vegetables are usually stunted a little.  But not this tomato.  This tomato is the largest tomato I've ever grown and definitely the most anatomically correct thing I have ever seen, so far as vege's go!

The front, with 'his' appendage:

But wait, it gets better!  This tomato, I kid you not, has a butt!

I held on to this tomato as long as I could but about two weeks ago, I knew it would go bad if I didn't eat it - ugh, no pun intended.  Funny thing is, no one wold eat the little penis.  The rest of the tomato was great though!

Here is the actualy garden from the left

and the right

In additon to phallic tomatoes, this year I am growing (from left to right in the two pictures) Basil, sage, green beans, zuchini, red pepper, sweet bananna pepper, tomatoes (with marigolds to keep the slugs away - so far, it works), rosemary, green pepper, coriander, parsley and mini water melon.  The evil squirrels stole the first water melon when it was two inches big and now I spray them with hot pepper oil to keep the buggers at bay. 

Next year I'll be in an apartment and won't be able to have a garden so I'm trying to go all out this year.

I made everyone who stopped at the house look at the tomato as it was growing.  It still cracks me up.  Smiley

That's the best tomato ever....you should come up with an extra special recipe to use it in. Such a tomato deserves a glamorous end.

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.

I've been canning my tomatoes all day and most of tonight... and so I've seen a lot of tomatoes... but none of mine were quite so bold... teheehee!

Hahah! That's golden! My parents have a wonderfully huge organic vege garden and we often get funnily shaped veges...but they don't usually have butt holes Cheesy My favourites were always the carrots, we'd sometimes get these ones that had grown legs...and sometimes they'd have that little male appendage...hehe...Grin Veges are so cool!! I miss the garden now that I live away from home...buying veges is such a drag!!
