My Bounty...

This is what I plucked from my little patch of garden heaven today.


Yes, those cukes are big, but not nearly as big as it looks next to the bell pepper. That mexi-bell didn't get any bigger than a ping pong ball or so.

On the left is the unknown mutant alien pod that I have been talking about. I couldn't resist picking it. Its not anywhere near ripe, but I was hoping that by dissecting it I could either figure out what it is or get a payload from the Enquirer for discovering alien life...



Still no idea.
It smells kind of sweet, even though it is not quite ripe yet.

Bah, IDK!!!!!!

Maybe it's a giant deformed cucumber?

Maybe it's some kind of squash?

IDK, I have been doing some more research on it, expecially since its taking over my garden...

It may be some sort of squash, OR it may be something in the muskmelon family. It has a lot of common characteristics with a winter melon (kind of a cross between zucchini and cantelope) But they're getting ripe now...the norm is November. I guess I just have to be PATIENT *gasp* and wait to see what happens when they get fully ripe.
Good news: I have 4 big yellow watermelons started!! YUMMY
