This is what I get for reading Fifty Shades of Gray

to my eggplants.  You know how some botanists believe you should read to your plants?  And here I thought it was an urban myth.

    That’s 50 shades of Aubergine. I love rude vegetables.
    XXOO Kat

  2. Perfect Kat… Just perfect!

  3. You were so right when you said the whole world is reading the damn book – my 19 year old sister-in-law asked me on the weekend if I was reading it, because she is, and so are all her friends!

    I once had a strawberry that looked like that eggplant, except it had three parts to it – so yeah, it came with a pair ;-)

  4. Delilah Hunt says:

    Hahaha. Well now I know those pictures of sexy plants are real. It’s the curse of Fifty Shades of Gray! I still haven’t read that book, though, and really wonder if I ever will.

  5. Amber Skyze says:

    LMAO That’s a curse. :)

    Please do not chop off the appendage while ‘I’ is in the kitchen and looking on, he may get a complex……

    We have a school garden at the prison where I teach. Yeah, let that sink in. Someone was nice enough to donate (chu-ching!) Japanese cucumber plants. They were beautiful and green, but they produce very phallic cucumbers about as long as my arm (seriously) and about as big around as a baseball bat. I found myself sneaking into the garden, ripping all the cucumbers off the vine, and tucking them in a brown paper bag like I was carrying porn home with me.

  9. I bought it but don’t know if I’ll read it any time soon. So… What are you going to do with that naughty eggplant, Julia??

  10. Casey Wyatt says:

    That is hysterical! Does it have an inner goddess?

  11. Casey – I’m going to have to check the other eggplants for their inner goddesses! :P

  12. Hmmm, Stacey, good question. I will feel really weird cutting it up and/or eating it! Haven’t actually read 50, just skimmed.

  13. Lorca – you are carrying porn home with you! For sure don’t let anyone see you!

  14. Tom, I don’t see how I can bring myself to do it. It’s so… ewwwwwww!

  15. I haven’t read it, Delilah, but yes, those pictures are true! I think it’s hilarious!

  16. Too funny, Ciara! Did you eat the strawberry? Yes, most of the world is reading the book, not me. I do think some of the hub-bub has died down.

  17. I guess it was happy you decided to read to it..LOL

  18. Well, the eggplant was happy about something, Savannah.

  19. In answer to the pop quiz, cold water.

  20. Only you, Julia. That is hysterical.

  21. It is, isn’t it Stephanie! And 100% real!

    Julia’s X-rated garden…

    (will be sending bill for cleaning up all the coffee I spewed)

  23. Jaye – LMAO! I’ll send you the eggplant!
