|I'll tell you why this is weird later.|
Remember Adopt a Crop? Yeah, me too. I liked it. It was fun.
Maybe it was just the polling or maybe it was the planting of a randomly chosen thing, but when I realized that I'd planted out the whole garden this year without putting in the one random thing that would get us all WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS THING later in the year, I got sad.
Well, not *sad*, but just kinda felt lame about it.
But since I'm the All Powerful Oz around here (and by "here" I mean, "this blog"), I've decided to do Adopt a Crop this year, but just a little different so that I don't have to rip something out of the garden just to satisfy my urge to grow something weird.
Weird can grow elsewhere in my yard, I just know it. And, really, weird grows ALL OVER my damn yard, so it won't be that weird anyway.
If weird falls in the woods and no one is there to hear it, does it still make a weird sound?
OK, I've gotten off track.
This year's Adopt a Crop weirdness is of the tomato variety. Weird in the sense that these varieties from which you are about to choose are not all Standard Red Beefsteak Tomato varieties.
No, some are fucked up colors and - here's the weird part - they're not going in the vegetable garden. I'm just going to jam them in the yard.
Don't you love it? Weird tomato growing - it's the best.
Hopefully it's not just weird. I'd love to ship off some weird byproduct of the weird tomatoes grown in the weird place later this year to one of you weird fuckers rather than just sit here and go, well, that was weird and move on with my life.
Has this gotten weird?
I don't think I can use that word anymore.
Choose your weird *shiver* tomato: (See the types here)
Vote for your favorite variety by Friday and I'll plant your choice this weekend in the...uh...*odd* place in my yard. Then we'll just see what happens with that...uh...*strangeness*.
Meanwhile, speaking of oddities (FYI: not all of these are garden related, so if that's all you're here for, you're free to go)...
|Poppies growing randomly just right next to the beehive. Probably because that's where Jada dumps.|
|We ripped out our wall thinking our pipes were leaking when IN FACT they were just NOT PROPERLY INSTALLED. HA HA FUCKING HA. Argh.|
|Already got an artichoke on the plants. Is that weird? Maybe not.|
|I daresay the weirdness does not need explanation. I hope the tomatoes are in good hands.|
So go vote already and I'll let you know what's getting planted this weekend before the weekend comes. Or not - that's the weird part!
OK, never again with that word.
