I’ve encountered more surprises from our Birdhouse Gourd vine. The early fruit looks just like a peanut! Aren’t they cute?
The first budding fruit was round, but the newer ones are all shaped like a miniature version of things to come.
Also surprising are the leaves. I’ve been carefully avoiding them, assuming they were rough like the pumpkins but learned as I brushed against one they are as soft as peach fuzz. What a fun plant!
Do you have any new discoveries in your garden this season? Please share in the comments, below.
