OG thanks for the onion tip. Funny thing is that I always start my green bunching onions indoors from seed but buy sets for other onions. I grow onions in Mel's Mix. Will have to try what you said.

Lunch desert today came right out of the garden. I planted two Hales Best Jumbo melon plants and they produced a total of one small melon. But it was very good.

Just when you think the season is at an end, the golden wax bush bean plants in the SFG surprise with more beans. This group weighs in at about one pound.

Harvested a couple of Canada Crookneck Winter Squash. Each one is 14 inches long and together they weigh a total of 5.5 lbs. We previously harvested six of these and there at least seven more to be brought in. Also found a new baby CC squash but it will probably run out of season before reaching maturity. Think what you may of the first photo.Fourth Year SFG in Canada - Page 22 Img_2234

Thanks for the info on the 5-Color pepper.

So, you had hail and wind up in your area. Shocked How are you? Any damage?

The majority storm ripped through the city and spawned at least one tornado that cut a 40 kilometre path. At our house it sounded like a train but we only got some high winds and rain. I thought we might lose megatrellis. We lost a power substation that feeds almost half the power to this city of almost a million people. I don't expect we will get power back for days.

Not even a close call with a tornado can stop our veggie/fruit garden from producing. Presenting today's harvest of beans, tomatoes, eggplant and raspberries.

Trolleydriver your harvest pics a fabulous. 
You definitely had a great year for squash! Hope the Canada Crooknecks make it to maturity. I have a Bush Butternut that fits in my hand but it turning. It must know it has limited time left.
