Sally in the Zen

Confessions of a Befuddled Zen Buddhist

Miniature Vegetables

Speaking of tomatoes and peppers, Sally in the Zen, how are yours? How did it go this summer?

Why, they’re dead, thanks very much for asking.

But before the plants shriveled up and died, they left these for us.

Let me provide a more accurate depth to these younglings that took all summer to mature.

Bountiful?

Not even.

“Ooohh,”  Zen Mum murmured.  “Miniature vegetables.”

Food for Thought

This would be our second summer that we tried growing our own tomatoes and peppers.  We bought the younglings from the supermarket at the beginning of the season. 

But something looks off kilter. 

Something looks quite not right.

Instead of gleaming luscious succulent red tomatoes…

…we have…(pout)…(pout)…odd looking cherry tomatoes…

What should have been large shiny green bell peppers…

…we have instead…(sigh)…green chili peppers….

Food for thought:  must remember to read the labels a little more clearly next time.
