This is the white version of bitter melon I bought from evergreenseeds.
Most of us drift in between 6:30 - 7:00 but latecomers are just as welcome, so don't turn around if you get caught in a Shelbyville traffic jam.

We will get the report from Barbara how she liked those Chinese Bitter Melons (or gourds) she took home last meeting. They were white ones but they come in green and various shapes from Evergreen Seeds on the West Coast. http://www.evergreenseeds.com/bitgourbit...

It has turned in to a good season, so we have plant to share and talk about. I'm getting fall plantings i whether I want to or not. Some of my Chinese cabbages and kale have already started to reseed. We ate all of the ones we really like so I will need to use new seed on them, but we like volunteers as well. (except for grass and weeds of course)

The chocolate mint I got from Tami at one of our meetings has really done well. I need to move some up close to the kitchen door so I use it more in teas.

I planted it in a cinder-block opening that divides some garden beds and it is overflowing BIG TIME. Smell great when I brush up against it though, so if my wife gets curious why I am rolling in the garden, back me up! OK?

Gettin' a call. Gotta go.
