Again, another lame picture post. I am so proud of all my squash and pumpkins growing that I had to share it. It's blurry because its already dark when I get home so I didn't stand still enough for the shot. CSA members should have squash to last them till at least December if they took all that was offered the last few weeks. I could not have done it without the help of CSA members. They helped mulch the areas and weed and that's why it was such a success. 4 people working for 3 hours instead of 1 person really makes a difference!

Those big round green things are gourds. If pumpkins fail- gourds always grow so they are a great backup- so now I've got gourds! I grew bottleneck gourds and 'bowl gourds'. Evidently I can let it dry out and make a bowl! Hubby again thinks I'm crazy....but what else is new?

Next post.... Eddie's stay of execution... a heart wrenching story- get your kleenex ready.
