This isn't for inspiration necessarily just trying to see if I can post a pic. Funky two-toned summer squash plant if it works.

2007 was a good year for winter squash. Mostly moschata sp. as squash bugs and squash borers make short work of any other species.

redneckplanter,
Well to be honest, my husband does most of the cooking...I lobotomize the squash, wash the seeds and roast them and hand the rest to him. The bigger ones are cut into chunks and steamed, then mixed with a little brown sugar and butter. Or try a little lemon juice and salt on them. The smaller ones are cut in half and some butter and sugar is melted is the middle. I use 'em in "pumpkin" pies - they make a much better pie than most pumpkins that I've grown (except sugar pumpkins). Haven't tried them in soups yet, but that is next. Even though 2008 was driest that I can remember (1" of rain in july and august) the squash did well again this year and we still have some sitting around. My 6 month old niece prefers hers steamed and is very partial to Seminole squash. She spit out the Tromboncino squash that we didn't get to in time for the tender summer squash stage. After her reaction, I'm afraid to try them now that they have a hard rind.

All I can say is WOW!! I have been reading here for a couple of weeks, but this inspired me to register. Are all of these grown organically? I try not to use anything in the garden, but it usually doesn't work very well for me.

After reading here, I think that this year I will try heavily mulching with some old hay. Maybe that will help. We have 2 horses and I have been recycling their manure in the garden. I also called a stable nearby and they told me if I want to get some of theirs, I could have it. My asparagus bed seems to love it.

Anyway, I just wanted to let you all know that you have inspired me by these pictures.

redneckplanter - yep! She is taking after her mother. We are going to try her on some of the Greek Sweet Red and Texas Indian Moschata squash next.

mattmattsmomma - can't speak for anyone else but the winter squash were grown organically - nothing put on them, in fact they were grown on our enormous brush pile where they thrived in the summer drought. Gourds and moschata squash are the only things that can survive the squash bugs and borers here. Haven't found anything that is approved for organic production that works well on them so am sticking to things that they can't easily kill. Try tromboncino squash - delicious when used as a summer squash, productive and it's a moschata species. Although when it is allowed to ripen fully (hard shell/skin) it apparently loses it's appeal to 6 month old nieces! The brush pile also hosts an endless supply of re-seeding Matt's Wild Cherry tomatoes. They are also impossible to kill and once you plant them - you've probably got them forever! The plant that is taking off the compost bin in the photo below is 1 Matt's Wild Cherry tomato that was a volunteer. Those earlier postings of tomatos pics inspired me to start drooling and then order 5 more varieties of tomatoes to add to the 30 or so that we already grow.

Absolutely Awesome Pics, Nicole!! I'm so jealous....and in awe of many of you that garden in areas that have cold winters. Don't think I have it in me to get out there and brave the harsh winters. The one with the bird in the cherries is gorgeous. Cherries!?!...not in my wildest dreams. Thanks for the visual.

hehe....my husband is from Texas and some of his family still lives there. I get very confused trying to give them gardening advice...everything is so different. The cherry tree came with the house, it is old old old. I dont think its going to make it much longer. I actually need to start a thread about it. It is splitting and I am pretty sure it has borers and there is sap leaking. My daughter tries to fix it all the time as she loves it.

Re: any pics for inspiration?bragging rights???
 
could you take part of it and graft it to a new tree magik?
that way she'd still have part of the old one...?

I will have to try those. I saw in a catalog yesterday, where I could buy the seeds for Matt's Wild Cherry tomatoes. I don't think I would be able to find those locally. I may get some of those. My little boys name is Matthew. It might be fun for him!

I spent a good deal of time out in the garden yesterday, trying to get it cleaned up and ready for planting. I got half of it cleaned up, but the other half I will need my husbands help.

I hope to be able to add some pictures on a thread like this someday!!
