Freak of Nature?

Today was carrot digging day. It was a lovely sunny warm day (finally!) so I knew I had to spend some time in my veggie garden getting things cleaned up. That means carrots dug, gladiola bulbs dug out and put to dry, and lots of tidying (aka weed pulling and removal of old stalks). I always know there will be a few "surprises" with the carrots. There are always the carrot best friends (side by side and tight!), the carrot lovers (entwined around each other), occasionally carrot conjoined twins (two grown together). But today I dug out a "first". I'm not sure whether to call this Hermaphrodite carrot, or Gender Confused carrot.... Have a look. Shall we have a carrot naming contest? 
One side













And the other side. Yes - same carrot..











Just thought you'd like a little chuckle.. straight from my carrot patch!

Peace,

We have a ribbon for the most unusual veggie in our garden club. I'm sure your carrot would have won.

I suggest you use it for a Nose on a snowman.
