Pumpkins & Squash

Pumpkins & Squash

The pumpkins and squash in the garden are coming along nicely.  The bush beans and cucumbers, for the most part, have run their course.  We are left with a bit of a tangletown of vines that are crisscrossing the garden.  We planted a variety of pumpkins & squash this year.  Cinnamon Girl F1 seems to be the dominant variety, but there are at least a couple Rouge vif d’Etampes which have their seed originating from our first planting of this type roughly four years ago.  The squash we planted this year are a bit of mystery.  The seeds were in a mystery bag from my mother – no label.  Several different shaped seeds in the bag; we simply placed them all in the same mound.
