What's up Doc?

We've had a minor growth spurt in the garden. Though everything's still sadly disappointing overall. But let's celebrate some victories, shall we?

Mystery curcubit:

Looks like a watermelon. I find that odd since we hardly ever eat watermelon so I'm not sure where those seeds would have come from. Could be a cantaloupe too.

A few tomatoes. Nothing ripe yet.

Sunflowers that I transplanted into the raised beds since I have no heart to simply throw them aside when I thin seedlings:

They look better than the original one in the pot.

I finally found some eggplants.

It's a bit late in the season, of course, but they do love the heat. Keep your fingers crossed.

And finally, I finally got one good thing I planted from seed that I can eat.

It was woody and tasteless, but somehow one of the best carrots I've ever had.


  1. Woody and tasteless is what salad dressing is for.

  2. Is that your birthday carrot?
