These roses came from my DIL's rose garden. She and the littlest grands are off to Alberta on holiday and while she's gone I get to cut and bring in her lovelies. Well, I didn't actually bring them in because it's cooler on the porch and I want them to last as long as possible.
Last Fall I bought an assortment of small gourds for display. I kept seed from the three that I liked the most and sowed them in Spring. This is one that came up and it is NOT what I planted. In fact I'm not sure if this is a gourd or a squash. Does anyone know how I can be sure which it is? And, if it is a gourd, is it edible?
This is a volunteer that came up in the flower bed. Looks like a Spaghetti squash, perhaps? Again, will we have tummy upsets if it is a gourd?
Now this one looks like the one I kept the seed from. Nice and warty.
This is my teeny tiny salad box. Third 'crop', with Romaine in front and leaf lettuce being the sparsely growing row in back. I've always heard that lettuce won't germinate in the heat of summer but this sure did ( maybe that's why it came up sparse though).
Love this Dahlia with the huge blooms
