I shouldn't have been so quick to brag about my garden's eggplants.

Check out this freak-monkey.

First... it's huge. Secondly... it's all bend out of shape.

I don't know if I am going to be able to eat this one.


  1. I think it looks great. And yummy. Aren't eggplants super-photogenic?

  2. that guy is huge! but i think he would still be scrumptious to eat!

  3. That's not that weird. You should see some of the mis-pollenated cucumbers i have.

    Cucumbers that don't pollenate fully get misshapen - the seeds grow along one side of the plant (the flower end furthest away from the vine) and don't closer to the vine.

    Anyway, i just picked a cucumber that was 3 inches in diameter on one end and 1/2 an inch diameter on the other, with a big curl in it -- how weird.

  4. Must be an individualist. Not one to run with the crowd! Probably an artsy soul...
