pumpkins and tomatoes

 this year we decided to plant the pumpkins in with the roses. we had kept the geese in their so the ground was well manured. If you look closely you can see two little golden nuggets almost ready for me to eat.
Here we have the queensland blue, I think, as you can see there are still lots of flowers so I think there are more pumpkins coming. although it might be a little late now. should I remove these do you think?
All the tomatoes are ripening nicely and I spent sunday making this sauce for my spaggetti and slow cooking over winter. some have home grown oregano in them and some have onions from the garden. Yummo!
if your in the south how are your harvests going? Still lots of cucumbers and green tomatoes in my garden, the beans have just about finished but soon the spuds will be dug up.
see ya

Your pumpkins and sauce look great! Too cool here for pumpkins and tomatoes but I do have cool weather crops in: cabbage, spinach, broccoli, onions,garlic and kale.

the sauce looks good and you'll enjoy it in the winter.

It warms my heart to see your little pumpkin. I love it when the garden is in full bloom growth. I normally do not pull off any blooms. As I feel the plant has a way of self selecting which bloom gets to survive. You have me thinking about starting seeds. Awe spring. It is my favorite time of year. Happy gardening. And enjoy your bounty.
