KinderGARDENS K is for Kitchen Creations

There have been a lot of questions about where we got the molds to make heart tomatoes. We got them at Clean Air Gardening and they are Snap and Shape Tomato Molds for cherry sized tomatoes and peppers.

Having kids makes a great excuse to experiment in the garden.

The Snap and Shape forms look like this on the plant:

And they do this:

I also got some rectangle cucmber molds and face molds from Vegiforms. They are retired now but they still have some stock.

This head form usually goes on zucchini, small gourds and cucumbers. We are experimenting with a tomato because its what we had growing at the time :)

Wouldn't you like to put these tomatoes in your salad or hand your mom a cucumber with a face on it?


  1. I really appreciate your post and you explain each and every point very well.Thanks for sharing this information.And I’ll love to read your next post too.

  2. Thanks for sharing the link to the molds! I think a face cucumber would be awesome :D

  3. When I read the title of your post over at Inadvertent Farmer "molding veggies", I thought... Oh, dear. A fungus got them? ;) But these "molds" are much better.

  4. Molding veggies? I have never heard of such a thing! But very cool! A heart shaped veggie, or one with a face in it, would be fun to give away!

  5. I am going to buy a couple more faces and the rectangles. They are working well on the cucumbers. The faced tomato didn't turn out that well. The hearts are pretty small and I am still waiting for flowers on my cherry tomato's to see how they work. When the heart molds are put on the big tomato's they loose their shape as the tomato grows.

  6. Okay, I've never seen such a thing. Heart-shaped tomatoes. Love it!

  7. a face cucumber? how cool! thanks for the links!
