Jody Banaszak of Blue Point sent in this photo of her mutant tomato, above.
She writes, "I can't bring myself to eat it, but maybe when her time is up, I can collect her offspring [seeds] and plant them in my yard and have loads of smiling faces in my gardens next year!"
That sounds like a good idea, Jody.
And if you're looking for friend for your tomato, you might ask Anthony Kamanes Jr., of East Meadow, if he'll let his mutant, below, have a playdate with yours.
Do you have fruit or vegetable that has human or animal qualities? Send them to Garden Detective, and I'll share them here.
