It's a jungle out there!

And the squash vines are thriving.
See close up below...

And even closer --


Yes, they're overtaking the sprinkler. These plants obviously have never heard the saying "Don't bite the hand that feeds you!"

What kind of squash are they? We've had gourds that grew everywhere....and they would wrap around everything, even blades of grass, in a matter of hours. It was neat, yet creepy.

I planted two kinds this year - zucchini and acorn squash. The odd thing is this: the plants are thriving, but we have no squash yet! I think the pollinators aren't doing their job this season. Lots of flowers, no squash.

That is so green and inviting. I can smell the moist dirt from here.

Hopefully the plants start producing soon so you can make some yummy zucchini bread!

Whoa! I saw the biggest zucchini live and in person today. It seriously about 18 inches long and as big around as my leg in its widest point! Something's in the air with the squash this year!

Wow, that is squash mania going on in your garden. Where do you walk? :)

Nice site you have here. That Rhubarb Crumble Cake recipe sounds really good. Now excuse me while I enjoy your archives.

That looks wonderful! My garden tomatoes are producing like crazy, but I haven't weeded. Your garden looks nice and tidy. :-)

Wow! Great garden. I can see I picked a good consultant for my own garden.

Our pumpkins are growing (and flowering) all over the place, but I haven't seen any fruit yet. But I do have two watermelons growing (still only golfball size).

Squash has no boundry, they will take over the garden if allowed, I know mine did, coming by to say Hi

Hello and thanks for visiting my blog earlier! I have a similar looking garden. I planted zucchini and cucumbers but the pumpkins and gourds totally took over and choked out my cucumbers (they also made it about 12 feet to start climbing the tomato cages). Its the first year I've actually got some nice carving size pumpkins so I'm trying not to complain!
