Dr. M, Isn’t this fun? There is a farmer who displays such plants every week at out community market.
Good morning, Catherine. I just saw an awesome video about a major French supermarket which is making a point of selling ugly and disfigured fruits and vegetables at a steep discount. They report that we (the world) throw away 300 million tons of fruits and vegetables annually, often because they don’t conform to supermarket standards of beauty. So I love your veggies!!! Eat and enjoy. And would Farmville work for a meet-up?
And what a shame. The uglier the tastier!
Farmville would be fun! How about this? Charley’s Waterfront? Stop me from buying furniture! I will be in and out of town a little bit. Will you email some dates that work for you? Thanks for stopping by!
Whoops, Catherine, I didn’t get notified of a reply. Glad I stopped by and checked. Charley’s is perfect. I’ll check my calendar and email you soon! Looking forward to meeting you in person!
Ha! Yes indeed. I always love the distorted vegie-friends photos. And here they just made it legal to sell produce from your yard to others. Duh! As a libertarian, it made sense from when time began. We were basically doing the same thing when we exchanged our produce. Government! Get out of my way!
I’m glad you like the pic. If I am authorized, I will sell you some. ; )
Very funny, Catherine. Sometimes the fruits and veggies *do* end up looking a bit strange, but as you say, it affects their flavor not a whit. And I, too, saw the story on the French supermarket–thought it was brilliant. 🙂
