Autmn Surprise

We are on our way to a season of diminishing and cooler sunlight, but the harvest is just starting to get really heavy. First surprise, the few popcorn stalks that fought through weeds and imperfect spacing produced cobs, and dried well so far. The improperly pollinated ones we refer to as snaggletooth, which we will still pop and eat. Had the half acre of popcorn actually produced, I’m not sure we’d know what to do with it right now.

Spaghetti squash seem to have produced well, there are 50 curing in our shed.

The blue hubbards have grown really well and most weight well over 10 pounds. They will cure in the sun, scars and all. Next year, I might try to use self-stick googly eyes and see if the woodchucks still take bites.

Banana squash, Pink and Blue. The pink banana squash may grow bigger yet, but this is the only one I saw.

Don’t fear the woodchuck, it’s the mice in the barn. They have been taunted with drying  sunflower seeds for a few weeks, and finally had their meal qith some pumpkin too. So the pumpkins are now in the shed.
