That led to using the flower beds as garden beds, which led to a huge new bed and… Yeah, those first veggies were the gateway…You get the idea.
- Carrots require patience.
- Green bean blossom are edible.
- The front flower beds are pretty with veggies.
- Onions bulb when the base gets sun.
I also learned that vegetables don’t always grow pretty like the ones we see in grocery stores. It’s funny how our perception of veggies is that they’re clean and pretty and shaped just right.
I’ve seen two-legged carrots, curly okra, alien-baby sweet potatoes, and malformed radishes. In most cases, they still taste good. 🙂
Those farmers go through a lot of trouble to deliver pretty produce to the grocery stores. I think I’ll keep growing my own, wash the dirt off, and serve ’em up.
Would you buy ugly vegetables at the store? Would you use those ugly veggies if you grew them yourself?
