Dec 2017. Volunteers from compost and asparagus one month growth

21 Dec

So tall! Over a foot tall! Unfortunately I do not know how old these crowns are. I am going to assume one year crowns. Impulse buy 🙂

I think I have some kind of squash! First time used some compost. I have a closed bin which possibly has zucchini seeds from the old zucchini I grew earlier this year or spaghetti squash seeds. I hardly buy any squash. So excited to see what we are getting!

Also I see a couple of tomatoes. We had a random volunteer that grew and grew and grew. It was a pear yellow cherry tomato and was very productive so these are likely from that.

Can’t bear to thin these guys but surely there will not be a good outcome?! 

Pumpkin picking Suzie’s Farm

Pumpkin field. Suzies Farm

Today we went down to Imperial Beach by the San Diego – Mexico border to pick a pumpkin!
It was so much fun! They had so many pumpkins left and also all sorts of different shapes and sizes.

I fell in love with these funny looking pumpkins with warts! So ugly they’re cute!

Not sure what I am going to do with them yet. Carve or eat?! Chavez has obviously decided they’re good enough to eat 🙂

 

Yum yum. Chavez likes to eat pumpkin vine!
