Connie Jenkins of Northeast Roanoke stopped by the newspaper office today to show me this Mortgage Lifter tomato she grew.
She thinks it looks like twin fetuses facing one another, but I told her I think it looks like a heart from the side opposite the stem. Either way, she said she didn’t think she could bring herself to eat it.
I’ve gotten several nice Golden Boys from my vines so far this summer, but nothing oddly shaped. There is still time this season, though.
Got a funny veggie or fruit? Send me a picture at firstname.lastname@example.org.
