A few weeks back-- before I took my little blog-cation--- I asked you 'what you thought this bloom may be?'
Most of you were right it was a squash... Zucchini Squash.
The BIGGEST ZUCCHINI SQUASH this girl has ever grown!!!!!!
No kidding, the one in the fore-ground the size of a football. I wish I HAD a foot ball so I could show you... but believe me--
---IT IS HUGE!
These were grown on the HUGELKULTURE MOUND IN THE KITCHEN GARDEN. With little to no effort. We've had good rain and mild temps; with lots of sun!
They are delicious too.
We're still getting zucchini and cucumbers from there. We have corn growing out there, but I'm afraid we won't yield much there -due to high winds and ...dun,dun,duh....
grasshoppers. Yes! they're back!
The front beds are doing better-- the chickens are keeping most of them (grasshoppers) away. Up front, we have tomatoes, okra, pepper plants (no peppers yet), cantaloupe, spinach -- the first batch bolted already, the second batch is still going strong; as well as, the lettuce. I started carrots and beets late-- we'll see what we get.
