St. Wombus and the Zucchini


Badge Awards


St. Wombus, a little known saint of the late middle ages, achieved fame and beatification for what came to be known as the Miracle of the Zucchini.

Namely, there was only ever the ONE zucchini.

This feat, a sort of vegetable inversion of the loaves and fishes, was so astonishing and obviously counter to nature that Wombus was beatified at once.

His blessing is sought by gardeners who have foolishly overplanted. An icon of St. Wombus, buried upside down in the vegetable patch, is believed to keep most members of the squash family at manageable levels.


You can take the artist out of Catholicism... anyway, another little piece for AC, about 6 x 10 or thereabouts, mixed media, it'll be in the art show unless somebody hits me up for it at the pre-con price. Prints available for $10 plus shipping. Send a note or visit [link] for details!

Ohmigosh I *need* an icon of St. Wombus. Every year, the squash take my garden by storm, edging out everything except the mint, which fights back viciously. Is there a saint for mint?

:) Beautiful and hilarious as always.
