Surprised by Mother Nature

What would you call this?  Surprises, Bonuses, Quirks? Mother Nature surprised me twice last week with vegetables growing inside the outer layers.

First, it was a pretty little red pepper inside.  So cute, like a heart.  I took it as a good sign after facing surgery and health issues recently.

Have you ever seen anything like this?







Or, have you ever seen anything LIKE THIS?


The pretty little pepper turned out to be 3 pretty little peppers, not just one!  They were all snuggled up and attached to one another.




A few days later I opened up a bag of carrots to find 3 carrots growing inside this large carrot.

Weird.

I don't know what these veggie bonuses mean, but winning the lottery was not on the cards.

One last thing, years ago my Mom had double yokes in the whole dozen eggs in a carton. Simply amazing.

Have you ever gotten under the skin and found something fun- no not insects.  I think that's why I don't like to shuck corn, all the little surprises you find in the cornsilk.

I have seen mini peppers inside larger peppers, I like to call them fairy or angel gifts! Never found a carrot with 3 inside but I noticed that I have a garlic plant growing with 3 major stems! I'm thinking I should probably dig them up and separate then before the weather gets too warm.

Sorry you are having medical problems Gloria, not fun. I will keep you in my prayers.

God love ya!

Stacy- Thanks, these are weird, but I saw them as a good sign, too! I wonder what the next pepper will hold inside, lol.

Karen Anne, Love that- fairy or angel gifts- I will think of them that way. Oh, get to that garlic- it's a bigun' lol.

I just read your new post and left a msg. Keeping you and your hubby and mom in my prayers, too. Believing for their recovery and wellness. Thanks for your good thoughts and prayers, they are all most welcome.
