What is this?

I thought I had planted some cucumbers seeds but, after 2-1/2 months of growing and waiting, this is what I got:

A picture of a cucumber, I think.

Potato or Tomato

I don’t know if this is normal or not, but I found tomato-like fruit hanging off of one of the potato plants.

Blooming Cactus

The cacti are blooming, but the weeds aren’t

Pizza Mushroom

I have heard of, and like, mushrooms on pizza…but, a mushroom that looks like pizza?

Dusty Flowers

The Dusty Millers made it through the winter, and rewarded us with flowers.

Peach Blossoms

I could hardly believe it when I first saw flower buds on these two peach trees. I thought they had been destroyed by rabbits eating the bark off the trunk a couple of winters ago. Last year I would ram them with the lawn mower and actually mowed down the suckers on a third tree. I was told, and believed, that the suckers wouldn’t be fruit producers, but the blossoms are saying this might not be so.

I should find out the results of this in the next few months, so stay tuned to this station for further updates.
