Morning Garden Tour

Photo Description
This is the melon that looks and tastes more like a cucumber. They are best at 6-8 inches. Remember, when saving a fruit/vegetable for seed, it should be allowed to stay on the plant/vine for as long as possible.

Multi tasking. Dining and pollinating.

Bargain fern. Should have gotten more.

River Birch with impatiens and ivy.

Vinca - I make this bed annually for passersby to enjoy.

Partially opened portulaca.

Thanks, Judy. There are several melons of this type. Their seed is sold as Armenian Cucumber seed. There is only one real Armenian cucumber. It is the one I have pictured.

When they are picked at 6-8 inches, the skin is so thin and tender, there's no need to peel them. Their taste is of a very mild cucumber, never being bitter. They are delicious when diced and added to a salad.

Fabulous! How do you eat that melon cucumber? Raw?

You eat and/or use it in a salad just as you would a regular cucumber. Only difference is, if they are small- 6-8-10 inches, they don't need to be peeled.

i think the larger ones would be perfect for cold cucumber soup. I need anything cold. Yesterday, the heat index here, was 106.

Here is a better picture of the Portulaca. It's more fully opened.

And here are some of the mum cuttings (The garden variety that you can't overwinter, only I did). They grew too large for the little congested pot they were in. I planted them in individual cell packs. I hope they don't out grow the cell packs before I need them in flower beds this Fall.

(All for free,Y'all!)
