This morning I climbed into what I call the Bed of Chaos -- where zucchini grow from pumpkin seeds, pole peas grow in piles, and volunteer tomatoes outpace pepper transplants. I went in to pull out the peas, which are not producing, and to prune the pumpkin so the peppers and eggplant could get some sun. And I found more strange things.
I'm pretty sure this is a yellow crookneck, growing from that same row of pumpkin/zucchini plants.
And, alas, I think this may be a baby pumpkin!
I also found potato berries, from which I can harvest TPS, true potato seeds. TPS are planted to produce a tuberlet which is then planted to grow potatoes.
I love the blackberry blossoms, and how the blackberry vines are spreading all over this back area!
I also found another overgrown zucchini -- how did I miss this the other day????
I was most excited to find cucumbers! I have had so little luck growing them in the past -- fingers crossed!
Hopefully the eggplant and peppers can now get growing, with a little more sun on them!
