Mutations?


This is a tomato. I see a face, do you?


Looks like Popeye the Sailor Man, with a bulbous nose, his eye is closed and his pipe sticks out on the right. That is a jaw full of spinach on the left.

What's that you say? I need to get a life?


Corn triplets ..........


Three cobs ...... no kernels of corn.


Deformed potatoes ........ but edible.


I see nothing here, unlike my tomato.


A hippopotamus fetus?


Last, but not least. My tiger lily. All the tiger lilies have bloomed and withered. All the brown stalks and dead leaves have been cleaned up. Then this. Never seen a bloom on a leafy frond before ..... and not just one bloom, either.

It has been a strange summer. The intense heat has suddenly subsided and I have turned off the air conditioners. It feels like fall. The air is crisp and my tomato plants are acting like a freeze is imminent.

I've been having the same issues in my garden! Well that's when there is anything to pick. Except the okra. I have tons and tons of okra. Guess who doesn't like okra ;o)
