That Which Makes Us Different
This "horned" tomato wasn't exactly what I had in mind when I planned our garden this year.
I was hoping for bright red slicers I could layer over mounds of crispy lettuce and Turkey bacon. Definitely not this devilish tomato that more closely resembles animation than a vegetable.
When the first plant was put in the ground, I was anticipating the taste of homegrown goodness. But I can't bring myself to eat this one. It just doesn't look right.
So, he sat upon the windowsill in the kitchen and became a conversation piece.
JB felt the little guy needed a face to go with those horns. Being the eternal optimist, I suggested a rabbit look. With Sharpie in hand, JB created his rabbit rendition.
While making pea salad for the cookout yesterday, I came across a carrot from the same gene pool and showed it to JB.
Within an instant, the tomato lost it's shine.
