vegetables of character


And now for something completely different. Well, not completely. It’s still produce. But kinda sorta different.

It’s not tomatoes.¹


I think this guy looks a bit like a cross between The Shmoo and Lou Costello. That is, If their union somehow resulted in a squash offspring. (This photo was from February of this year.)

I chose this photo to post in a hurry tonight, and it reminded me of the bizarre looking eggplant character I’d shared a while back. Upon digging up that post to link to it, I find that it was a year ago today that I shared that eggplant. And so, a tradition is born. From this day forward, I declare November 21st to be International Day of the Odd Vegetable.²

¹ I have one last tomato post stewing, but don’t have time to wait for it to finish cooking. I have too much other produce to deal with for Thanksgivng.
² This name could use Some Work. Any recommendations? (Day of Peculiar Produce?)

  1. It’s not just vegetables that get in on the action. Take a look at this slab of lard I came across while making pies one time.

    Good lard! It sure doesn’t seem happy to be made into pie crust.

  2. Very cute! Reminds me of VeggieTales. :)

  3. This is the cutest squash I’ve ever seen! Very goofy-looking, and I mean that in the most positive way.
    International Day of Kooky Comestibles?
