HI all !!!
Temps are going up here in the great commonwealth of Va. Been planting lots in the garden.. that's why I haven't been around much PLUS I got a new kiln an dhave been busy!
Anyway... I have new things that I am planting that I got from the high school. Has anyone ever grown MANGO MELON or Ground Cheeries?

MIss you all,
Deb

I have some seeds for Ground Cherries,

haven't actually grown them yet, need to get the seeds in soon, not sure if they are perennial or just reseed themselves good, they are kind of like cherry tomatoes with a husk and are very drought tolerant as far as tomato family members go!

My newest pets, fish in my pond, are growing like mad, and are getting used to me and actually let me see them without sneaking up on them!

ground cherries.

Are the cherries a vine or bush?

I'm told they look like the Chinese Lanterns,

that grow wild along the road around my place, which look just like a small tomato plant but doesn't need a cage. But it might depend on what variety you have, the ones I know of are from wild stock (native plants).

Mine are Aunt Molly's,

the packet says they are extra sweet and good for preserves, pies, and topping ice-cream, they are often sprawling plants,,,,shows what I know!
