This mystery melon is growing in my garden. It should be a pumpkin but the seedlings at Home Depot were badly labeled . Does anybody recognize this pale globe?

IMO, those large leaves suggest pumpkin, rather than melon.

Are there any plants that discourage snakes? If not, any other ideas? Carol7 35 Aug 23, 2007 12:37 AM
