Just a little update on the Butternut and Cantaloupe front….These were the two veggies I have been anticipating the most.
Well as far as the butternut (WOW!) all of a sudden it seemed to grow overnight. So I’m thinking this mamma jamma may be a little overgrown. 🙂
What a silly looking lil fella.
I have been watching this fruit for weeks. Not sure if anyone remembers but I even wrote a previous post on this “magical” fruit that seemed to appear overnight. Well long at last it is finally ripe enough to pick. I don’t think it’s quite ready to eat, however, so at this point we’ve picked the beaut and will watch it hopefully ripen in our kitchen. Check back in a couple of days for an inside view of our very first melon. In the mean time we have about 4-5 more that will be ripening in the near future.
Now off to sow the cauliflower seeds for fall.
