A Whole Load Of Veg

Now you will have to read the previous post in order
to understand the gist of this one
But I am happy to announce that I have received my first competition entry
Yes there is much misery in this world
Yes, we are not quite out of economic Armageddon 
And yes global warming is about to flood us all off the planet
So what does Going Gently ask of its' readers?
Well
MAKE A NOVELTY ANIMAL OUT OF A VEGETABLE AND SEND IN A PHOTO OF IT!
Of course!
Hook nose from Jessie in Alaska

Baby clanger was sent in by Andi this morning

See previous blog for the details of the competition
All entries will be exhibited at the

( locals will be expected to hand in their novelty veg in person btw as this is only
A fun competition for non locals)

      You don't have to grow your own veg... Just what you have in the fridge will do

  5. At least we now have a gold standard.

    Do you remember those potato stamps? I could carve one with "John aka St Francis". Bit of ink. Et voila. Who needs a business card if you can have an arty farty blur on flimsy paper. Don't say anything. I know it won't abide by the rules of the competition. Or only through the backdoor.

    Off to find a wilted pineapple,

  6. I love baby clanger! I have sent my entry in!

  7. Hmmm. Perhaps the GK's and I will troll our garden for an entry. They would love to know someone in Wales likes our odd Illinois veggies. But Baby Clanger might be hard to beat

  8. Maybe Esther Rantzen will preside as judge.

  17. Excellent stuff ~ photos which should make the headlines.

  18. These are just excellent!

    I spent an hour trying to make a celery sunbather in a carrot Adirondack chair; finally gave up and ate the lot.

  19. I thought the entries might have been quite basic, but they are really inventive. What clever and artistic readers you have. I am neither, so I won't even try.

  20. Those are so cute! What creative followers you have.

    Love,

  21. Uhhhhh, I love this! The hook-nose tomato is something and Claudette Courgette might have a date by the end of the night.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I had a tomato like that with a hook nose! Sadly it has been eaten!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Very good entries!
    I'm still thinking.

  24. Awesome! I love the small farm grown "oddities", so different from the mechanically harvested stuff in the supermarkets.

    Have you ever seen the film The Gleaners and I? It's a beautiful meditation on our mechanized, homogenized consumption patterns.

  26. As you noted, your followers are amazingly creative. I thought briefly about some onion slices I had as I piled them on a burger, but ate them instead.

  27. Without wishing to prick anyone else's entry balloon and their pride I just love the "fish" by Els. That is so simple, so stylish, so elegant - pure genius.

    Other than that this minute I look and, more importantly, feel like the dishevelled and seemingly slightly bewildered "Claudette Courgette" by Simone.
