The turban gourds and mini pumpkins in the pea planter are doing well. I hope there is enough time for them to mature before the first frost. It seems odd to be thinking of the first frost when a few days ago it was over 100 degrees, but in our area the first frost date is only Oct. 15, 7 weeks away.
I thought this was turban gourd some sort of deformed pumpkin at first! The vine is so long it grew into the pumpkin area, and climbed up a sunflower. The turban gourds are my first attempt at drying seeds myself, so I am thrilled to see I did it correctly!
Some of the mini pumpkins are producing. Yet again, I failed to make note of which area were planted with which variety, but I am fairly certain that these are Baby Boo, a white variety. So far there have been few female blossoms. They are climbing the sunflowers and are winding their way up into the lemon cucumbers.
