Homegrown

February 4th, 2014

On Saturday I was making venison stew.  As I pulled potatoes out of the bag from the root cellar I found this:
heart shaped potato
This isn’t the first time I have harvested a heart shaped vegetable from my garden. Many years ago I got a heart shaped tomato as well.

I love all the different colors, shapes and sizes of homegrown vegetables.

Have you ever harvested vegetables that were funny shapes?

    We had similar heart shape with chilli…….. and we dont the “heart” to consume that beautiful chilli. So plants do talk I guess, about being kind, and about love.

    Susy, I can’t say that I’ve ever harvested a heart shaped vegetable. I’ve found some pretty odd shaped veggies over the years. It has to have been all the love you’ve put into your garden and that’s just the garden’s way of saying it loves you too. :-)

    Have a great (heart) day in the garden. Or at least thinking about the garden.
