My dear friend gave me some hollyhocks seeds a couple of years ago, and they are blooming now. I've never grown them before but they are pretty, and very tall! This would have been a great year to try growing cantaloupe or even watermelon but by the time I decided to grow some it was too late to start them from seed. Maybe next year. Anyways, I spotted a new plant at my garden centre called a cucamelon, and I decided to give it a try. They produce little "cucumbers" that look like little watermelons. They taste like cucumbers with a hint of lime. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with them since my family isn't crazy about them, ha ha. There's a photo of them down at the bottom.
