Cucalope sounds fun. Nature is full of secrets, you never know - maybe it worked somehow. Did you save the seeds?
I am raising West Burr gherkins, rainbow chard and carrots, purple bellpeppers, alpine strawberies from seed(and just today I bought some more -pineapple crush variety, which has very good taste - paid over six dollars for a pack-most I ever paid for a pack of seeds.) I have jicama seeds, but I am still hesitant to put them in, because it is a funny plant - keeps vining and putting in new roots - and my plot is small. And I already have a moon and stars watermelon growing in there. Golden nugget squash too. Oh, yes, kiwano melon, which is more of the cucumber.
I have bunch of greens like purslane, miner's lettuce, mache and others which I didn't put in yet. I am also waiting for the seeds from tomatoegirl - new zealand spinach, mexican sour gherkins(they taste like pickles straight from the vine).
Can't you tell I love weird fun stuff.
Oh, almost foprgot my chickweed- I love to juice it and always make sure to leave some, so it can grow back. Does anyone have lambsquarter seeds-for some reason it doesn't grow in my garden naturaly.
