Acorn and butternut squash that were easy to get a photo of.

#gardening #squash #acornsquash #butternutsquash #butternut #wintersquash

A photo of two acorn squash hanging from their vine. These two are about 12-16 feet from where the plant is growing from. They are dark green and the vine is hanging from a hollyhock plant. There are hollyhock leaves, some strawberry plant leaves, dead leaves, and the squash vines around them.
A photo of a butternut squash on the vine. It is setting on the ground that is coverd with black poly barrier and against a hollyhock plant. There are squash vines and hollyhock leaves around the squash. The squash is butter colored and more than 12 inches long with the end away from the vine being bulbous by about 1/4 of the diameter of the slender part.

With the #yegWX frost warning, we decided we should just harvest our squash rather than try to cover them (the plants had spread over nearly half the garden).

Tempting as it was to try to let them grow a bit longer, I'd say these pumpkins are big enough.

They are an heirloom variety from Australia that are actually a really neat shade of blue that I wish came across better in the photo.

I screamed to see it gone, but the pain persisted. With it, a #deluge of emotions surged through my body until I cried a #serenade. A #frame of relief to #outfit me, before everything melted down to a #soup of agony, its weight about to #squash me. The room started to #spin, then all was #black.

Computer not working, so no new pictures. Here are some pictures from this time last year. Descriptions in ALT. #birds #birding #birdsofmastodon #birdphotography #deer #naturephotography #squash #hoosiermast

A great egret, wings outstretched, flies low over the water, looking for a place to land. These birds gather together during the fall, preparing for migration.
This is a male rose breasted grosbeak, hatched this spring, stopping for a drink at the birdbath. He is on his first migration south. He looks like a lot like a female, with a brown head and shoulders, but you can see the beginnings of his red breast and black on his head. In time, his head will turn all black,  he will have a prominent red breast and most of the brown will go away.
Our neighbors have a huge oak tree in their yard and deer love acorns. Here is a youngster, born this year, licking its lips, while its mother grazes for acorns in the background.
It's pumpkin time. Here is a display of pumpkins and squashes (ornamental and edible) at the Fresh Thyme grocery store.

Big pink-gray pumpkin 🎉

A surprise pumpkin (or squash) in our front yard 🤩

about 11 kg (24 lbs)

We did not plant this, it just popped out, so we kept the plant growing 😉

This is the only fruit we got, but huge - 12.5 inches (width) – 8.5 inch (height, not including the stem) – 39 inches circumference. We are all happy 🥳

We don’t know what this is (could be a Nanticoke Squash variant), so, won't be eating this - we will save this for Halloween decoration 😊

@enog I inverted your problem: instead of a squash in the flower bed, I have a flower in the squash bed. I have no idea how long this sunflower has been growing in the container with this Delicata squash; I only know I missed it completely until it grew a flower head.

#Gardening #ContainerGardening #Squash #Sunflower #VegetableGardening

A sunflower stalk, complete with a small flower head, stands tall over a container squash. The squash has three bright yellow horn-shaped flowers of its own, growing just above the level of the pot. Although a slightly lighter green and smaller, the sunflower leaves are quite similar in appearance to the leaves on the squash plant.

Nanticoke squash variation?

A strange pumpkin-like plant popped up in our yard a few months ago 🤔

Now we got this, only one fruit, it’s about 14 inches wide, pretty symmetrical looking 😊

Not sure what this is, it maybe a Nanticoke squash variation (I googled) - looks delicious 🤔

And, it’s been nicely protected by hostas 😊

#Pumpkin #Squash #Plant

This winter squash may be a Nanticoke squash variation - light pink-orange color, pretty symmetrical, about 14 inches wide, and looks delicious. It is still growing, protected by hostas that are growing around the squash.

#Squash #gardening update. These are probably pumpkins? And the new kabocha is doing well.

Hey #gardening folks, do you fruit prune #squash and #pumpkins? (Removing some of the fruits when small so the plant doesn't over exert itself.) I'm growing medium size pumpkin-like squashes in containers.

Also, what causes female flowers' fruit parts to yellow and rot instead of starting to grow? Is it inadequate pollenation or a nutrient thing? The kabochas are doing this, but the butternut-species pumpkins aren't.

#today We had another steamy deluge last night, but now the heat has broken and it was 60⁰F this morning, going up to "only" 80⁰F this afternoon. Nice change and a good day to be outside. BTW, it looks like my Butternut squash is planning world domination in the near future! 😀

A 40ft. x 20ft. area of garden completely covered with butternut squash vines.  A few yellow flowers are seen poking out from under the lush green leaves. A partial row of eggplant seen to the left and some sweetcorn visible on the right.

I'm growing a remarkably vigorous #hybrid #spaghettiSquash that's supposed to be a "summer type" which I assumed meant it was a *not* a winter #squash and could be eaten like other summer squash, but I can find exactly zero information on this thing so I have no idea when to pick it, whether or not it needs curing, etc, etc. #gardening #help

Are you ready for some #gardening

A week late on planting the corn but we have until June 1st.

Watch this space!

Today is Friday, May 19th.
Saturday, May 20, the mounds will be made and corn will be planted. #Marigolds and #Sunflowers will be planted also.

Next we wait for #beans and #pumpkins, #squash, #melons & #zucchini planting time.

While we wait for the corn, raised beds around the edge will be made for traditional garden plants like #tomatoes, #peppers, #lettuce, etc.

@evan or #orange #squash when run by 4 eight year old #kids and their mums aren't #charging them for the oranges which of course means they are getting a #concession on basic #costs. And usually no rent.

Shockingly the mums have also been known to juice the oranges at no charge. Appalling behaviour.

Only one of these items is a #squash. Which one is the impostor? (Shhhh if you were around already the last time we bought one of these!)

Perched on a granite countertop are two dark green and yellow food-things. One is rounder and one is longer. They both look like squash.

Going to see a physio later. I have what is called "golfers elbow" even though I don't play golf. It is seriously affecting my #squash. I took two weeks off squash to let it rest but it is still there. If this does not work then it is cortisone.... I canr afford to start the year off with an injury.

Hello again! I decided it was time for an updated #introduction. I'm Timo, a food microbiologist turned process developer. Recently made the move to #AltAc after serious mental health issues during my PhD. Apart from posting on #Microbiology, #FoodSci (Beer, wine and dairy in particular), I'm also involved in Inclusive Diversity initiatives. In my free time, I love to cycle, listen to podcasts and play #TTRPG's and am looking for a new place to get back into #BallroomDancing and #Squash.

Two years since I did an #introduction.

In my professional life I've previously run a dvd-store and failed at streaming services. At the moment I'm going old-school and manage a #cinema.

In my spare time I co-manage a family, play #squash, read #comics and #speculativefiction and I love games (#ttrpgs/ #boardgames/ #videogames). I'm also into #cooking, #miniaturepainting, #weirdmovies and #photography.
