Yesterday, I picked the latest ripe tomatoes in my garden. Several have the same problem as others — spots and blossom end rot and a few odd shaped ones. This time, however, I think I got one that’s a little different. I’m wondering if the chickens got into the garden but since we don’t have any that’s not the case. This one does not seem as much a tomato as it resembles a baby chicken – with an eye, a (broken) wing, and even a small beak! If there was a way to preserve this as is I’d probably do it. Is it slaughter if I chop off the head of the chick? Do we let this one survive only to rot? Do I let it loose? It can’t run far! I think we’ll try to keep it a bit longer but it will most likely find the same fate as the other tomatoes. Maybe it would sell on E-Bay!
One thought on “Tomato – or chicken?”
I think mother nature just likes to play tricks on us to keep us on our toes. Great job with the blog. It makes for a great read! What a great community!
