Anybody growing any good stuff? I got my usual veggie garden, having a hard time with grass right now. Got the first tomatoes I have been able to grow in about 5 years! :) and the first yellow squash in two years, before critters kill the vine. Best onion crop I think I have ever had... Texas Sweets I think they are... garlic didn't do so well this year, it was small...

The two green things are called Barese, it's an Italian cucumber/melon. They say you can eat it like a cucumber small or a melon when it's bigger. The one I have eaten was good, it was about two pounds, but it tasted just like a good tasting cucumber. It has a seed cavity like a cantalope, you just cut it out, and the peel is really thin, I just ate it without peeling it. It was good in salad.

Excellent job Buds. Can you grow Vidalia's where you are? What else is in that garden? Do I see a pot of cayenne peppers? Well done, indeed.

Thanks! :) Yes, we can, I think I have grown some before, but they are hard to find. I usually grow some type of sweet/mild onion.

Those are called boquet peppers, I got them from my grandmother years ago and trying to keep them going...

Other stuff I have in the garden is tomatoes, butternut squash, yellow bell pepper, pimento pepper, Chitlepin pepper, Lemon Drop pepper, sweet potatoes, basil... the cucumbers suck lol! They were a free pack of seeds I got, "experimental" stuff, they have a very mild cucumber flavor.
