Ingredients: * 1 long Kikinda Competition Strain edible gourd (at least a couple inches in diameter), sliced * The equivalent of about five medium-sized tomatoes, cut up * Lots of summer savory, both leaves and stalks (if you don't think it's too much, it's probably not enough) * Parsley ...read more

Torpeda melon with turban

in Muskmelon
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
The turban melon split open, probably a while ago by the look of it. I started fermenting the seeds and used the rest to enrich soil, since it seemed unsafe to eat. I'm fermenting the seeds since they have a whole lot of gel. Since that trait seems recessive my plant probably isn't a cross (unle...read more

Weeks NC Giant watermelon crosses, 2019

in Watermelon
by Radishrain • | | 5 comments
Here's a picture of our largest watermelon to date, this season (I'm guessing it's 17lbs; there are some potential contenders). It's not huge, but it's large for our garden. It has pink flesh and black seeds. It may, or may not, have a winter watermelon in its ancestry. This was one of the fi...read more

Honeycomb x Torpeda F1

in Muskmelon
by Radishrain • | | 1 comment
I grew Honeycomb F1 last year and saved the seeds (at least one of which got cross-pollinated by Torpeda). I grew the cross-pollinated seed this year, and it grew these two fine fruits, which were quite striped earlier in the season. They slipped from the vine when ripe, surprisingly. I don't re...read more

Charley's Pride melon

in Muskmelon
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
I'm growing seeds that I was told were Charley's Pride. However the fruits didn't match the description—but I think that may just be because the plants are struggling with the growing conditions. The fruits are undersized, and not all of them are striped. They should be quite large and striped. ...read more

My trellised Huerfano Bliss honeydew melon set at least two fruits (which are a fair size already).

Our West India burr gherkins are fruiting strongly, now. I should pickle some next week. The bushier plants have more prickly fruit than the flat plants.

We have two fruits on our plant now. One is larger. The plant is looking good. The initial fruit that I thought set a while back didn't keep growing.

Noir de Carmes x Metki Dark Green Serpent F1 melon

in Muskmelon
by Radishrain • | | 1 comment
This tasted phenomenal. The initial taste was like a good cantaloupe. Then like a second later, a whole new taste shockingly burst into my mouth powerfully! It's hard to describe, but it was very unique. It was sweet and good. It was savory, too. Definitely a melon I'd recommend. Fairly early, t...read more

Noir de Carmes melon

Here's the second fruit of the Noir de Carmes volunteer that I harvested. The first was bigger. I harvested two tiny ones, today. The pictured fruit was very good. The first one tasted a lot like standard cantaloupe, but over-ripe. The tiny ones were not very sweet.

Planted true Tristar strawberry seed

in Garden Strawberry
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
I visited some people on Tuesday, and they gave me some Tristar strawberries so I could plant them. I planted them on Wednesday (31 July) night, each strawberry in its own foam cup. There were four strawberries. I zapped the strawberries first (I hadn't zapped the Ozark Beauty or Quinault strawb...read more

Rooting West India burr gherkin cuttings in water

in Burr Gherkin
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
This thread began on our old/companion site: http://vegetables.boards.net/thread/461/west-india-burr-gherkin-cuttings Recap: I easily rooted a single cutting in water, and then attempted lots of cuttings in the same container of water. Anyway, I discovered that rooting lots of plants in th...read more

Rooting garden strawberry runners indoors

This thread began on our companion site: http://vegetables.boards.net/thread/459/rooting-strawberry-runners-indoors?page=1&scrollTo=678 Here's a new picture, today. It seems apparent that when rooting runners in soil that rooting the younger runners is more effective. The opposite might b...read more

Flavor and texture of horseradish greens in summer

in Horseradish
by Radishrain • | | 1 comment
So, I decided to harvest a full-grown horseradish leaf with chlorosis, today, and eat it. This is the first horseradish leaf of my my plants that I've eaten. The soil had loads of wood ash in it (so it probably needed more nitrogen and less calcium or something). The plant is getting green now, ...read more

Volunteer Red-seeded Citron watermelon, 2019

in Citron Watermelon
by Radishrain • | | 2 comments
So, I was in the front yard on Saturday, and I saw this for the first time! It's a volunteer Red-seeded Citron watermelon. The seed it grew from was from a plant that I grew in 2015. The fruits kept better than most winter squash. It volunteered last year, too, but this year's plant is mu...read more

Our watermelons are doing really nicely, this year, so far. They're setting lots of fruit, and some of it might get large.
