rustytrellis

Found a big squash hiding this morning... 651.5 gm












Transplanted my new pepper plants and grape vines.  Set up a trellis for the wrath.  My earthbox tomato plants finally are big enough to start sagging so I installed some support for them.  (How did tomatoes survive in the wild before man invented the tomato cage?)

Someone had suggested a squash recipe that I decided to try out Field Lab style - sliced the big guy down the middle, scooped him out, mixed it up with mushrooms and parmesan cheese, salt/pepper/olive oil on the shell, packed it all in (with some grilled bacon) and rolled it up in foil.  Baked in the grill for a half hour at 400°....was good. 74,83,49,0,B, 1.44

Once you get tomatoes and onions you can cook it like I do with homemade salsa. Are you growing any peppers, cilantro and garlic?

Before tomato cages, the tomato "vines" just went where they wanted. A couple of years ago I had some cherry tomatoes that ran for about ten feet beyond the bed. Every time they touched the ground they rooted themselves. I either had one big plant of a couple dozen not as big. The two original plants and all the sub plants together produced over five gallons of cherry tomatoes. No staking, just a little bull sh*** and water.

The "Home Wrecker" squash.

Nice trellis and tomato cage. Hope the field mice don't chew through this one.

Fine dining, al fresco style, on the good china. Sweet.
