Morning Glories In My Vegetable Garden

Last night for dinner Jon and I each had a delicata squash from my garden.  It was the sweetest squash I’ve ever eaten.  I don’t know if it was the seeds Marsha sent me, the donkey manure, or the weather.  Probably a combination of all three. I picked the one in the photo above this morning along with two others.

That’s a tomato next to the squash.  My friend and bookkeeper gave me that plant.  It had reseeded in her garden from last year. It’s a  plum tomato, but bigger than any plum tomato I’ve ever seen. I’m not sure it will turn red.  It hasn’t been the best year for tomatoes here.

I did get a lot of chili peppers.  There’s a bright red one behind the morning glory.   I don’t eat chili peppers, but I love the way they look and I have a friend who does eat them.  As you can see from these photo’s the Morning Glories took over this year.  The ones I planted by the handrail on the back steps have almost but not quite, covered the rail.

Another Delicate Squash and more morning glories.

  1. They are the best squash!!!! And you can chop and freeze the hot peppers and use small amounts in cooking…for a little kick! 🙂

  2. Delicata Squash are my favorites of all the varieties of squash. One of the farmers’ at our local market introduced us to them several years ago, and I’ve been so grateful ever since. This has been a rough year for tomatoes in CT, too…plenty of cherry and grape tomatoes, but very few plum tomatoes. Sad as I love them for making my sauce.
