I was rooting around in the garden taking photos of the progress and trying to remember where I found that tee-tiny watermelon on the 4th when I happened upon this guy:
|This watermelon is about as big as my fist...|
The white Casper Pumpkins will be really cool this Halloween too:
|Please be Kabocha. That would be tooooo cooool having 2 organic producing vines from my Natural Grocer purchases..|
I guess we will have to wait and see...
My family did not love the squash when I served it originally, but if you recall, they didn't complain when I served it in a smoothie. Emi informed me today that if I seasoned it with cajun seasoning, she would eat it up. I will have to keep that in mind. I am envisioning Kabocha Squash soup and maybe some toasted seeds.
It's hard to imagine the Fall now that Summer is in full swing, but the stores are already advertising for Back to School! We haven't even taken our summer vacay yet, so please don't rush us...and garden, please keep chugging along so we can enjoy some of your delights this season (watermelon, figs) and some in the following season (pumpkin, squash).
Hope you are enjoying your sum-sum-summertime too!
