I totally agree the weather is unpredictable, and its patterns are changing.   I wonder what kind of winter we are going to have this year?

 

Our fall has been hotter and drier then our summer was.   But this time of year it can change so fast. One good arctic storm can blast down from the north and we could have snow by next week  (I hope not though, I still have potatoes and carrots to dig.  Though I did finely get all of my firewood put up).

Wild, your garden is always an inspiration and a thing of beauty. LOL, my banana squash is beautiful! No squash, lol, but beautiful nonetheless. I think the lack of bee's this year is the problem. It certainly couldn't be the grower lol.

Hi Wild. Great job on sharing your garden life with us. I love winding the garden down this time of the year except for canning the tomatos. The cool nights and sunny days are as refreshing as Spring is after a hard Winter. We have another 3 weeks before average first frost so we're hoping most veggies mature. And we have to get garlic in yet. Thank you for this snippet of your world.

That sounds very delicious wildedibles,

 

I wanted to ask if you have ever had trouble with gourd/melon type plants together or near each other? I've heard stories from farmers that say pollination/cross pollination can lead to too hard/soft of a texture in some of them and was wondering if you had ran into that at any point

hum..... this year I have cucumber and zuchini close together and no issues with either of them
.... my accidental buttercup squash and acorn squash are planted on the other side of the house so no issues there nd I havent tasted them yet they take longer to mature them being winter squash

other gourds I have grown the ornamental ones but alone and melons will not mature here we have not enough growing time and to start them early they stretch too much need a green house to get a melon to grow here

This year I have had a mildew problem but it dosnt effect the fruit ....usually with my fermented fertilizer on the leaves protects them other people will have mildew and I dont this year mine started later them other people but I could have made another round or two of fermented ferts and probably have had no mildew issue

I try and rotate every few years but i dont have much room i usually just dig a new garden get rid of all my grass sooner or later ....no lawns just squash and peas and ....... :) food and herbs.....some pretty flowers much better then grass and hey im adding to my urban biodiveristy :) lol
