So the truth is that I'm kind of in love with squash plants. I love the way the bees buzz all over them. I love the flowers, I love the fruit, I love the vines. They crawl all over the garden and we have to leap frog over a lot of them but I don't care. They make me happy.
This is winter squash Black Futsu with yesterday's flower, today's flower and tomorrow's from right to left. It made me laugh.
This is a baby Queensland Blue [left] and a baby Golden Hubbard [right]. They're a bit bigger than your fist in this pic, but they'll get a LOT bigger before they're done. The QB will turn a lovely blue gray and the GH will turn a screaming traffic cone orange when they're ripe.
the little white pumpkins that seem to volunteer so well in the chicken dirt? I hope so - they make adorable decorations.
