Saturday Pictures

Mr. Intensity found something a bit peculiar at the farmers' market this morning.

It looks like a potato but is yellow like a lemon.
When sliced it looks like squash.
It is lemon cucumber.  I'm no cucumber connoisseur but think the taste is similar to a regular cucumber.  

In the next picture, can you tell which stick is organic butter?  It kills me to pay twice for organic butter, so I buy it sparingly.  We eat about two pounds of butter a week.
I have sprouts!!  Yay!  They're white swiss chard sprouts.  Last night we had a nice rain and it has rained on and off today.
Hubby's parents are coming next week.  The quilt on the guest bed was a wedding gift from his Grandma Krout.  This room has been transformed today.  It had been our storage room since we don't have a garage.  Now you can see the bed and the floor.

I have never heard of that type of cucumber. I did see a yellow watermelon the other day, I think I am going to buy it to try it!
