I said CANTALOUPE!

The date: Monday, July 27th, 2009

The time: 7:30 p.m. A usual return from work time for my husband.

The scene: I'm in the kitchen making dinner. Matt heads out to the patio to check up on his garden and water the plants.

Matt: "Hey! Something is growing from the cantaloupe plant! It's long and skinny though. Is it supposed to be like that?"

Me: "I want to see!"

I walk outside on the patio and see this:





Me: "That looks like a huge pickle!"

Upon further investigation, aka Google Images, we discovered that we most likely have a cucumber plant growing in our garden...not cantaloupe. Um, what? We don't even like cucumber.

Maybe this is God's way of telling us that we need to eat more veggies.

Is it wrong that I'm laughing at you? Last year, we planted 8 "green pepper" plants only to find out that they were ALL jalapeno plants - I still have some in the freezer a year later.

Thank you for confirming that I shouldn't even attempt to plant a garden. I think your experience is obviously a conspiracy by Grocery Stores of America!! :)

Teehee! That's so funny!

Careful, though. Cucumbers get sun-burned. They tend to need shade because of it. Don't ask how I know this...

LOL oh man!! I would be disappointed too! I love cantaloupe, cucumber, not so much. At least you are growing something, right? HA
