Remember the Cymlin?

By farmerdill

Back when I was a barefooted kid, all the old folks grew cymlins. Sometimes they might use the term 10 toes, but the official name was cymlin. As I grew up and encountered new folks, I heard the term patty pan used. Today we usually know them as scallops. The White Bush was what folks grew in my youth.

I called them flying saucers and my g'ma did, too. We lived in Lompoc, Ca., home of the original Burpee Seeds. I betcha the name Cymlins would have held if we had rhymed it with gremlins, but oh well. Now I know the real name. Thank you again, Dill, for your straightfoward ways and darned good writing!
