    Many rainy days here too but also sunny ones.

    Garden looks greener and colors deeper at the evening darkness.

    As the weather is sunny and warm, no rainy like it has been last weeks, chilies are again outdoors.

    More shadow at this side of the garden.

    Golden balls are flowering soon. Normally they grow like a huge bush but at this year they seem to stay smaller. Maybe the frost at the last winter damaged them too.

    Few flowers in the middle of green:

    Squash in the frame grows well:

    [​IMG]

    One fruit already.

    Squash bed at the 7th of July:

    [​IMG]

    Squash bed looks now quite different - huge growing during 11 days only:

    [​IMG]

    (2 shark fin melons, 1 squash and 1 round squash)

    I believe that the garden fabric has helped quite much with this fast growth as it has kept the temperature and moisture conditions an excellent for the seedlings. And of course, it has protected them from the slugs.

    Squash in this bed:

    Giant pumpkin and shark fin melon:

    Squash in the frame:

    [​IMG]

    (I thought before it was a butternut squash but I remembered wrong - it was a squash. Butternut seedling passed away earlier. Maybe too cold nights or too much cold rain. :( )


    I have also few tiny shark fin melons; before I put one half-rotten shark fin melon to the compost and it seems that there were seeds alive. The seeds germinated in the compost and as I used that compost soil in the squash beds, I got those self-germinated compost seedlings to my garden.

    [​IMG]

    Very spunky plant that shark fin melon. ;)

    Sister Herb.. You must have the greenest fingers ever. Your plants look so healthy. Butternut squash does not do well if they start too cold or wet. It is a miracle if I ever get much of a crop. :)

    So nice one. A few varieties of honeysuckle grows in the wild here but it´s also quite famous in the gardens. I should plant some too...
