Let's Get Dirty

Wanted squash, got a snake

I was poking around in my garden last night, trying to see if I could figure out what kind of squash plant was in a corner. With all my squash trials this year, I have no idea what survived. I was tickled pink to see this, since that little flying saucer means that this gigantic, healthy … more
