|This one hit the roof and kept growing. It would have been about 10' tall!|
|Greenhouse #3, pumpkins, melons, sunflowers|
|Greenhouse #3, watermelons, nasturtiums, green beans|
Green beans are still flowering, still no beans!
The Algonquin Pumpkins are a win-win-win! Lots of pumpkins on the vines, early fruiting, and continue to ripen after picking. My research says to pick when the underside turns bright orange.

Outside in the garden, the potatoes are monstrous. I haven't hilled them well, and only planted half of a short row, maybe 12'. Half of them are the Russian Banana that I grew last year, that never got big enough for anything other than seed potatoes. The other half are Yukon Gold that I picked up free from the hardware store long after they should have already been planted. The garden beans appear to be at the same stage as the greenhouse beans.
