They're Chioggia Beets. They're red and white striped inside, kind of like a target! Super cool! Never grown beets as big as we're getting now! We also grew the "regular" red beets, and they were big like this too! I like the regular beets best Smile

Here are the Tromboncino we picked today!! Close to 120 lbs worth, with one more we can't get down...too big/heavy, need some more help! I wish we'd have weighed all of them for the year, unbelievable really! The biggest one here is close to 4 feet for reference! Thank you again to Judy for sending the seeds!!

Jeez, what monsters! They look like they're all trying to swim away. It must have been fun to grow something so unusual and enormous.

I've gotta try growing those next year, even though my luck with squash is pretty iffy. But growing just a couple of those monsters would make up for a lot of lousy production elsewhere.

Glad the squash worked well for you.

Sanderson - the seeds are in the bulbs only.

Post  southern gardener on 10/13/2014, 2:29 am

they are crazy aren't they?  haha! they are definitely the favorite when people come see our garden. I'm wondering if they'll produce flowers again since we got all the squash off? Hubby got the last one off, it had wound all through the wire into a "snake" looking thing! so fun. It weighed over 10 lbs! The necks are all "good squash" with seeds only being in the bulbs at the end. I'm sure the seeds are cross pollinated. We had all kinds of squashes and pumpkins and bees. I have a couple of seeds left from Judy, so will try again in the spring. These are a MUST do for sure! So easy to grow and produced like crazy, No PM issues and just grew very fast and easily!! God bless all!!

SG, congrats on that monster! And on its being sweet!

I can't see the picture of the water bottle, only of the watermelon. Below that, a huge blank space.

Weird. I'm on Firefox, FWIW.

That sounds like it would make a wonderful winter dessert. Light, and unexpected. Maybe with a mint leaf on top, or a little swirl of whipped cream? Or surrounded by a collar of blueberries?
