July 31, 2012 -- gourds/squash

Here they come--the strange squashes and gourds of August (even though it's still July!). I just love these crazy things. Doesn't it look like they are talking to each other? The yellow gourds on the left are Wings N'Warts, the greenish-black squash in the middle is Chioggia. In the winter, I order squash and gourd seeds just so I can enjoy this harvest! Some of the seeds are so expensive, I'd save money buying the same squash at the grocery store (if I could find them), but that wouldn't be half as much fun as discovering them in the garden.
