I ran across these adorable heart-shaped molds for growing shaped vegetables on Burpee Seed this morning. You can purchase a set of 4 molds for $14.99 and grow your own heart- or star-shaped veggies. Update: Burpee no longer sells these molds, but they are available on Amazon for under $5 a piece.
I'll admit that I am a little partial to the heart-shaped cucumbers or zucchini, but I'm not so sure I like the shaped tomato slices.
If you are into the novelty of heart- or star-shaped fruits, this is a great deal on the molds. Until now, they have been very expensive and typically need to be imported from China.
Although I am tempted and would enjoy the novelty of a salad adorned with these delightful shapes, I'm not sure I will invest in ordering the molds - but you never know, the mood might strike when it gets nearer to gardening season here in Maine.
Until Next Time . . . HAPPY GARDENING!
