oops

cantaloupe Hermie ears
I seem to have much more success accidentally growing food than purposefully.

Some leaves sprouted from a bucket that was filled with extra soil, some of it must've been from out compost pile. So I planted the sprout in a container and have been watering it. It looked as if I had squash growing but now it has shown itself to be a cantaloupe!!

Cantaloupe is one of my favorite fruits, one that I never even thought about planting. It was also one of our kitty Ladybug's treats. Since we said goodbye to her earlier this month I haven't wanted to buy one at the store. What a lovely surprise to be growing one from one of our very own seeds instead.

I think little Buggy is telling you to eat cantaloupe and carry on... They have a way of letting us know they're still looking out for us don't they?

Yes, I agree with each of you. Bug is all around me in the very best way. Thank you. ;)
