A nice surprise was getting a little bit of sun today between the rain squalls and high winds we had last night.planted in June and collected our years supply of squash. 120 of the acorn squash, 40 of the sugar pumpkins and 10 of the jack-o-lantern type. We've given away a hundred or so of each type, sold 400 of the acorn squash to a local food stand, and there will be plenty for the pigs to feast on later this week. What I'll do is just electric-fence off the pumpkin patch and turn the pigs loose in it. a week or so and most of the vegetation and all of the squash will be eaten.
