So say you planted a pumpkin and watermelon right next to each other…

Is it possible for them to make little big pumpmellon babies?  Because this thing growing on what otherwise looks a whole lot like a pumpkin plant, looks suspiciously not pumpkin to me. 

If anyone could defy the laws of botony, it would be me. Have I mentioned that next year’s personal domestic improvement challenge is set to be gardening?  You know, on account of this mystery of vegetation being the ONLY thing I’ve managed to grow this year.

Totally possible. We grew a pumpchini one year when I was a kid. Looked like a giant over grown zucchini but there were pumpkin seeds inside.

P.S. The results of me harassing you from JoAnn's are on my blog today.

I think you made my day! The pumpkin just hasn't turned orange yet.

We did the same thing a couple of years ago!

It took forever for the thing to turn orange.

Now, watermelons go on the edge of the garden and pumpkins go near the house.

Yup, they can cross-pollinate! Congratulations, you made a hybrid! :-) Perhaps not a very useful one, but everybody has to start somewhere, right? lol

I am curious to know what the insides look like. I have heard that the same thing can happen if you put a zuchinni and yellow crook-neck squash next to each other. Fun!

I am curious too - I wonder what it will be like when you open it?

That surely just made my day, LOL! I garden was a huge nothing this year. Love seeing other's pictures of theirs. But you picture/post certainly takes the cake, LOL!
