RE: Attn: Vegetable Growers


Theresa, I love these!  I've never seen them before, but I can see them
being very useful for special parties/occasions (cucumber/pickle forms.)
I'm no good at carving unique veggie designs to decorate our table, but I
could cut up a heart/diamond cucumber to add some to a platter for pizzazz
at the table very easily, as well as use them in salads.  And I don't carve
pumpkins unless there is a small child around, so growing a pumpkin with an
elfin face would be really a nice touch for the front porch from Halloween
through Thanksgiving.    

I may just have to splurge on one of these forms.  :>D  I could do pumpkins
for the girls and for the grandchildren, giving them non-toxic paints to
enhance the pumpkins.  And the thought of having a melon growing along the
side of the driveway with a face would certainly add whimsy to the area.  My
mind is racing with ideas for gifts for the family and food ideas for work
parties.  I wonder if some would work on gourds....  That would open up even
more possibilities....

Blessings,
Bonnie

Yep-I saw an ad for these.  I guess with kids it might be fun, but I 
just thought they were weird.
