How To Grow This Cutest Fruit On Earth

How To Grow This Cutest Fruit On Earth

Have you ever heard of a Cucamelon? If not, you’re missing out on the cutest fruit on earth!

Cucamelons look like baby watermelons and taste like cucumbers mixed with limes. They’re from Mexico and are known as “Sandíitas de Raton” which means “Little Mouse Watermelons”. You can grow these cuties in a pot, barrel, plastic bag (you’d want to transfer the plant if the roots get too long), or directly into a garden!

    These plants are fast growers and have a maturity of 80 days which means you can grow them when it starts to get colder, too! However, you won’t find these seeds in a store. You’d have to look online and purchase them. (If you’re interested, I found a link where you can purchase them and receive them within 7 days!)

      If you choose to plant them directly into your garden, you can plant them as soon as the chance of frost is gone. They’ll need a lot of water and a little support with growing. You can put stakes into the ground for the roots to grow on, or use bamboo sticks as an alternative. After your first season of growing Cucamelons, you’ll notice that the root is very long. You can dig up these roots and store them in a cool, dry place for the winter and re-pot them at the start of the next growing season. This will give you ten times as many Cucamelons the next time around!

        You can use Cucamelons in food dishes or in drinks. In the image posted above, you’ll see Cucamelons in a Mojito! How awesome does that sound? The thought of growing a fruit in your garden (or home) and being able to pluck it off the vine and toss it in a food dish or a drink sounds pretty excellent to me!

          If you’re looking for a new, exciting fruit to try out, I definitely recommend Cucamelons! Your neighbors might even feel inspired to grow Cucamelons themselves!

          6 Signs It’s Time to Change Your Life

          6 Signs It’s Time to Change Your Life

          Is it time to make some changes in your life? It just might be. Life is too short to not live it to the fullest.

          Here are some signs it’s time to change your life.

          1. Every week, you cannot wait for Friday.

            Fridays are fun, but one thing I’ve discovered in my quest to find and do work I absolutely love is that almost every day can be really fun. If you’re saving all your living for the weekends, it’s time to truly think about your lifestyle and consider making some changes. Don’t get me wrong; it’s great to have plans you look forward to on the weekends, but what if you could have that excited Friday feeling most, if not all, days of the week? It takes a lot of self-discovery and work, but it’s truly possible to live a life you love—even on Mondays.

            2. You live for your vacations.

            Vacations are great, but what’s even better is building a life you don’t need to take a vacation from. As Seth Godin said, “Instead of wondering when your next vacation is, maybe you should set up a life you don’t need to escape from.” Vacations are fun and exciting, but even better is building a life where you have the potential to do what lights you up many weeks of the year, not just your two allotted vacation weeks.

            3. When you stop and think about it, you’re really not focusing your life on your priorities.

            Write down your 3 top priorities. Then write down the 3 things you focus most of your life on. Are you spending your time living your top priorities? Consistently spending time doing what matters most to you is one of the keys to feeling fulfilled in your life. If you’re not focusing your life on what’s important to you, it’s time to make some changes.

            4. You have no idea what lights you up, and you don’t have the space in your life to discover it.

            If you haven’t found your passion in your current life, you’re not going to find it if you continue to do your same routine, over and over, year after year. In order to discover what lights you up, start by creating the space in your life to seek it. Give yourself time to figure out who you are, what your strengths are, and what picques your interest. Experiment with learning new things, spending time with inspiring people, and doing more of what excites you and less of the things that suck your energy.

            5. You’re frequently jealous.

            If you find yourself frequently feeling jealous of someone, there are 3 changes to consider making:

            1. Make a point to focus on your path instead of his or her journey. Sometimes this involves taking a break from social media.
            2. Get inspired from the person you’re jealous of, and work toward a similar goal in your life.
            3. Decide what the other person has is not something you are willing to put in the effort to achieve, so you’ll cheer him or her on but choose to not be jealous.

            When you are feeling jealous, consider why you want what the other person has, and what your motives are. Living a life on your terms, focused on your priorities, passions, and strengths, will provide you with much more fulfillment than trying to be somebody else.

            6. You can’t remember the last time you stepped out of your comfort zone.

            According to Neale Donald Walsch, “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” Your life can become even more amazing if you stretch beyond your comfort zone. If you’re not sure where to start, try the tips in this article about small ways to step out of your comfort zone.

            Life is too short to spend your years not living to your full potential. If you decide you’re ready to change your life, I encourage you to start taking small action steps toward the life you want to live. Keep moving forward.
