A nice visual list of pumpkins and winter squashes can be found here. I like to look at all the photos and dream about planting a pumpkin patch one day. Personal favorites? Boer, Futtsu Early Black, Goldkeeper, Jumbo Pink Banana, and (of course) Rogue Vif d'Etampes.

Yesterday I stopped by the garden after work to water and harvest some things for dinner. I picked enough escarole and beet greens for a salad, I had a Mortgage Lifter ripe and ready, and I picked a few dark maroon figs for a sweet snack. The garden hot pepper plant has a dozen more fruits on it and the cucumbers I started two weeks ago are almost up to the trellis. Although the tomatoes haven't been terribly productive this year, there are some developing fruits that may or may not ripen by frost. To check your local frost dates, click here. Looks like my tomatoes have until October 20.
