I planted 3 oddball vines I started from seed in the front corner of the garden, under the privet, almost as a means to keep from throwing them in the trash. They all did a little bit of something, until lately when the cucumber took off. Now it is a menace to the small plot! It's all over anything it can get it's tendrils on! I was wondering what to do when I noticed one bloom had been pollinated!
I have to admit, I've been thinking this was a luffa gourd since it took so long to show fruit... Slightly disappointed, but hey, it's growing (and causing quite a sensation among the neighbors!)
