My Harvest

Well they are done. This was my first year, I made a lot of mistakes but also learned a lot. Battled drought, powdery mildew, SQUASH BUGS and record early freeze. But it was all worth it, here is my pumpkin and squash harvest.

RE: My Harvest

Wow - excellent harvest! Based upon the number of pumpkins and squash, I never would have guessed this was your first year growing them. Well done!

RE: My Harvest

Thanks radagast, there are about 50 that turned orange, still 15 or so out in the yard deciding what they are going to do. Anything I don't use or sell I will feed to the deer this winter. They loved my squash last winter & I know they love pumpkins. Funny I had to keep them out with an electric fence (oh yeah, another battle) for the summer just so I can feed them in the winter. Ha.

RE: My Harvest

Very, very nice. Those red kuris and buttercups look awesome.
