Do you remember a few weeks back I posted pumpkin pictures from the garden? Turns out they weren’t pumpkins. Not sure exactly how it happened, but the plants I thought were squash might actually be pumpkins and the plants I thought were pumpkins somehow are cantaloupe.
I did plant cantaloupe once upon a time but when they didn’t sprout I forgot about them. I planted squash and pumpkin later. Plant morphology for all of these are similar because they are part of the Cucurbitaceae family. I made the rookie flora mistake of “identifying” my not-yet-blossoming plants by leaf characteristics (Don’t do this in the field unless you are an expert, especially if you plan on eating the plants) and not revising these decisions.
