Small update (Black Thumb of Death Gardening)

Edit: I have imported this from my The Black Thumb of Death Gardening Blog to my regular blog...  

I have a laundry list of things to post, mainly the lessons I learned as a beginner and for my Zone 3-4. Another time. Instead, a couple of photos.

The first watermelon is about ready to pick. I put my hand by it to show the size somewhat. Sugar Baby watermelons are small, about 7" to 8 1/2" in diameter. Perfect for two people.

The pumpkin patch is taking over! If all the blooms make it, we will be in squash for a year.

Speaking of squash, I have a happy zucchini plant. The zucchini, patty pan and spaghetti squash plants were almost wiped out by the mormon crickets and earwigs, as were the pumpkin plants. We may get a few off each plant, but considering what they went through, we are lucky to get what we get.

One last photo for the night of the apple seeds that actually germinated. The larger seedlings are red varieties. The tiny one at the bottom right is a green apple. they should be producing by time our grandson is in college.

Night!
