I was thinking maybe "Fall Colors" which could still include "Harvest". This is the one I want, but it isn't really either one. I don't even know what it's gonna be when it grows up. Rolling Eyes

For (late) September I switched my avatar to my tomatoes. I had one to a few of most of the types I grew get together for a group photo:


For October I'll switch to my winter squash. Tetsukabuto, Burpee's Butterbush, and Trombocino (thanks, CC!) ...and a plastic beetle.

hm, I guess my sole tiny Delicata must still be in the garden. I didn't get any Hidatsa. My main garden doesn't really get the sun needed for squash, and I have conditions that favor powdery mildew... but I keep trying to grow them anyhow. dangit The butternuts were grown in an Earthtainer on my front porch, which gets more sun than the main garden, but the yield still could have been better. I planted the tomatoes in front of them, and the tomatoes got taller faster than the squash, shading them.

OMIGOSH, Beetles -- that's what a tromboncino looks like? If I get one of those, my family will still be laughing at me when Christmas rolls around. They already think I'm crazy for all the goofy things I try to grow. darn funny

Yep. It was high enough up on the trellis that it grew mostly straight - otherwise they curl. It did 'hit bottom' and I couldn't figure out how to elevate it without damaging the vine. I was terrified the voles were going to get it before it matured. Frost happened instead. It looked like it had gotten some damage from the frost (I think/hope the others are ok....) so I roasted it up after taking the photograph. It tastes bit like butternut squash, and I bet it would be tastier if it had actually matured and cured. Maybe next year.
