Bur Cucumber

While the bur cucumber vines are still blossoming,

some of them are setting fruit already.

When ripe, they are only a couple of inches long,

but in a photo with nothing to give a scale to it, my daughter asked if it was an attack watermelon.

That is too funny - an attack watermelon!! :-)

It is a strange looking thing. I've never heard of it, but I might try to find one next year.

WOW... I don't think I have ever seen this plant before. This was very educational... Off to Google more! ;o) Happy Day, Judy ((HUGS))
