Default What am I growing?

I started a garden and wanted to grow a few vegetables.

I bought all different kinds of seed packets sowed the seeds.
I bought a packet of gypsy broccoli but only 5 small seeds came in the packet.
2 of the seeds made it this far... it's been almost 2 months and the plants are about 5 inches tall but starting to grow some weird round things. It almost looks like a watermelon.
But they were not watermelon seeds.


I have tried searching the web but haven't had any luck. I was wondering if any of you had any knowledge or info.


Picture is sideways...oops.

almost?
that totally looks like a watermelon, down to the yellow flowers and leafstructure.
the buds kinda look closer to a honeydew melon but that might just be me..

since there are well over thousand species of melon out there I cannot even try to identify it properly;
but let's say
botanically I'd be amazed if that's not some sort of Cucurbitaceae at least

Well I did transplant two watermelon plants ( approx 3" tall) about two rows over, but the plants died a few days later after transplanting.

Haven't tilled since started this fall/winter.

Maybe whoever put the seeds in the packet labeled it wrong.

Now Nick...
You are a smart guy. I do not remember what a Broccoli seed looks like,
but surely you would have recognized a watermelon seed.

Funny thing is the basil seeds I planted look exactly like the questionable broccoli plant.
These plants are growing in the exact spot I sowed the seeds.
They were definitely not watermelon seeds.
Weird... just weird.

I was so hoping this would be Maui Wowie.

Just keep watering it and see what you get.

Wow... something is definitely metastasizing. Found two other small " melon plants" 5 rows over. SMH - weird.

I pulled those. Can't wait to see what this mutant thing grows in to.

Try NFNT (No Fines No Time)

Like we did here in Toledo, Ohio

First in the nation!

much simpler & NO taxes.


Toledo Municipal Code

513.15. Marihuana laws.
(a) No person shall knowingly obtain, possess, or use marihuana or a compound, mixture, preparation, or substance containing marihuana other than hashish, whoever violates this section is guilty of possession of marihuana. The penalty for the offense shall be determined as follows:
(b) Whoever violates section (a) of this section, anywhere inside city limits, is guilty of one of the following:
(1) Except as otherwise provided in (b)(3) of this section, possession of marihuana is a minor misdemeanor drug abuse offense.
(2) If the amount of the drug involved is less than two hundred grams, possession of marihuana is a minor misdemeanor drug abuse offense. Persons convicted of violating this section shall not be fined and no incarceration, probation, nor any other punitive or rehabilitative measure shall be imposed.

(Ord. 365-14. Passed by electors 9-15-15.)

Toledo police DO NOT even bother responsible adults with small amounts any more. (up to 200 grams/almost a half pound)

It's no longer worth the paperwork or wasting the courts time.

Citizens initiative got it done!
