Mutant Veggies

September 23, 2009

My garden is just about done for the year.  The weather has turned colder and all that is left is a few Roma tomatoes that are half orange and I am hopeful but doubtful  they will turn red.

I’ve been canning carrots and canning beets this past week.   I froze the last of the peppers today and made a batch of orange rhubarb jam.  Just for fun.  It turned out really good!

It is always fun to see the variety of vegetables that emerge from this rocky ground here in the high dessert.  Here are my samples for this year.

Poor confused carrots did not know which way to go in our clay soil.

    Wow! What they all lacked in perfect form, they more than made up for in effort! 🙂

    Oh, how cooL! 😀

    You had come by and asked for a copy of the Soldiers Bible. I don’t have it with me as I’m not on my home computer and won’t be for another few weeks. If you email me at the end of October, I can send it to you then.

    HA HA – makes me think of that episode of Gilligan’s Island where they plant radioactive seeds.
