Ugly Vegetable Contest

Ugly Vegetable Contest

For All Ages! The Seed Library @BCPL announces our first ever "Ugly Vegetable Contest!" June and July are exciting months, because that's when a lot of our veggies start really producing. Even though they're tasty and healthy for us, let's face it, some are prettier than others. So, we want to celebrate even the ugly ones, because they're just as delicious. If you've got a tomato that's not perfect, or a cucumber that's not comely, send a photo to spennycuff@blounttn.org, and include your name and the name of the variety if you know it. Please send a selfie photo, in addition to the ugly vegetable close-up, with you and your veggie. We'll award a winner on Thursday, October 31, for the prize of a $100.00 gift card to our local garden center, "Out Of Eden." So, if your pumpkin is puckered, or your gourd isn't gorgeous, be sure to share it with us. Watch the library’s Facebook and Instagram pages for some spotlights on your entries, throughout the season!
