Gourds Gone Wild (and Other Funny-Shaped Foods)

Talk about being a ‘food freak’…

I’m in need of a good laugh, and I hope you are, too!

I’ve found a pretty funny little collection of bizarre, amazing, wacky, and hilariously-shaped produce, grown this way straight from the garden!

Believe me, I could have included a number of naughty-looking fruits and veggies, but I chose to keep this post family-friendly. Some of them really were that bad. Perhaps for another day when I’m feeling more brave!
