Accentuate the Positive

Three days of rain and our melon plant has gone crazy.  I think in quadrupled in size.  It is covered with male and female blossoms and our fingers are crossed that summer lasts long enough for us to get some fruit.  There is a wood frame over it so worst case senerio it could be covered with plastic to help it along.

 On the side yard I had planted 3 old pole bean seeds I found in the bottom of my seed basket.  I have no idea what they are.  but they have outgrown the repurposed Christmas tree frame (it is meant for lights, not plants) and are reaching for the crabapple tree.  I carefully unwound the ends and directed them to the fence instead.  They are covered with dark purple blooms.
