Perhaps last week I mocked our summer garden (and the Seattle weather) too much, because things have improved! As a result, we've had at least one tomato ripening each day. We've also had quite a few peppers since last week (7, maybe), & 10 cucumbers. Our grapes are very close to being ripe, and my kids eat them with regularity, despite the slightly sour taste!
I've also discovered that our squash plant (that I must confess I forgot about, hidden as it was behind the pumpkins) is producing. We made a saute one night for dinner, & I plan to make Squash Bread this week.
Our pumpkins are continuing to ripen & grow. Here's a picture! My kids are anxiously awaiting the day when we can pick them. Question for the more experienced gardeners. We planted the pumpkins in early summer - will they be too ripe by Halloween? Should be plant more if we plan to use the pumpkins for Halloween purposes?
