All kinds of things

The watermelon suffered the attacks of a cruel killer, probably downy mildew. I uprooted the shriveled vine and saved the immature melon (pictured below among friends, oranges and peaches in the same bowl--a sample of my excellent tomato crop in another bowl and the zucchina lunga encircling the extended family). One can see how immature the poor thing is. I don't have the heart to throw it away.
BUT, I have good news: my Zuccherino is growing:

along with a more distant relative, the zucchina lunga:

And mushrooms are popping up here and there:

Cut the little baby watermelon open I want to see what it looks like - red even though it isn't ripe?
