    Oh... that is so cute. I guess it really likes it new home. Enjoy it little while you can. These plants grow fast and furiously and before long you will have a monster plant on your hands with multiple spikes over three fee in length covered with enough blooms to gag you from the "chok'lit" fragrance. LOL!

    Cheers,

    Unpicked zucchini? LOMA, Joe! Years ago Yankee Magazine accused New Englanders of sanctimonious wood stacking and malicious zucchini giving. I never forgot the statement because it's so true!

    Sharry is a cutie, Tami! Congrats on coaxing the infant to bloom!
