Word on the street: I grow tasty pumpkins

Yep, there has been some taste-testing going on in the garden...not by any two-legged creatures, though.

Time for the pie pumpkin harvest! That green stuff? A mix of creeping charlie, dandelions, grass, and the evil creeping bellflower. Eight pumpkins ready to harvest for cooking, and a few wee ones to display on the front stoop.
Garlic and walking onions planted in the foreground in a new raised bed), cold frame, strawberry bed, and two new "Grow Beds" I got from Gardener's Supply Company.

  1. After that “crazy” FB post about fall garden cleanup, your garden looks suspiciously clean and orderly. Pumpkins look good apart from squirrel snacking. We have some very aggressive squirrels in my neighborhood as well.

    1. Yes! Part of my cold frame is in shade in fall, and the plants really show it. It’s fine in summer, but if I want to extend the season, I need to set one up a bit further from the house.
