Today's weather: Supposed to be the same. Bazinga!
This past weekend was pretty productive. Because of the nice weather I was able to get out and tame the wild pile of squash leaves into something resembling a garden. I pulled an entire plant that was producing nothing but leaves, leaving me more room to spread out the Buttercup Squash which has produced more fruit than I expected. Right now I have about 9 or 10 squash growing fast on just three vines.
The pumpkins are also taking off. I pulled all but three plants earlier in the summer and I've got four pumpkins growing.

I also picked the pea pods that looked ready. There were even more than I thought. I only picked half of them and have enough for at least three meals:

So far, still no hornworms. I've heard reports from other Mainers that they have them so I'm keeping a close watch for them.
The war continues...
