Squash and pumpkins

This is what is left to harvest of the squash and pumpkins the day before the frost. I had planted 2 acorn squash, 2 butternut squash, 6 orange pumpkins and 2 white pumpkins. No weeds!

And it will remain weed free.

Frosty Watermelons

The watermelon vines have been done in by the frost. I picked all the small immature melons and put them aside.
Then I remove the vine and put them on the compost pile.
Next I carefully cube those small melons up with a big old knife
Then I rototill them in.

I have either eaten or given away 14 melons and I still have these 14 left. I only planted 4 seeds.

Dug the Sweet Potatoes

This is what they look like before I started digging.
This is what it looks like after I'm done digging.
And this is the result. Just over 60 pounds from 10 plants.
