SasquatchNut One.
This one came in at 26.4 lbs. It was still in the garden. Somehow I had missed it.
I am making good use of these monsters. We have eaten one in various forms: delicious soup, delicious sasquatch bread. Its flesh has entered our Shepherd's pies and vegetable stews. I have taken three of the biggest to the food bank, where people there marveled at their size.

Still summer.
The flowers hang on, beautiful bougainvillea and giant marigolds...

Butternut or SasquatchNut?
I harvested most of the mutants. The one I weighed came in at 14.6 lbs, the average, I think. I left some smaller ones on the vine. What is their problem? The seeds I planted were extracted from last year's regular size butternuts. As one can see, some of the squash show some cracks. From ?

Looking at my tomatoes, I see that they might be thinking this is July, and not October.
Yes, the wagon garden is a little unkempt, but the fruit is abundant and of good size.
What have I learned from this summer's garden? I'll put my thinking cap on and report later.

Kale stems.
Before I cry about the kale stems, here is what I saw while I was gone one morning before sunrise, city lights still on:

And here is what I found in my greenhouse:
The work of one voracious grasshopper or two. Possible?
