Butternut

I am really excited about the butternut squash this year. Last year I got 2 really small ones and the squirrels ate all the acorns :(....They ate all the ground cherries as well, they were taunting me right in my face....I am not too crazy about squirrels. Yeah yeah I know that they are God's creatures, but leave my vegetables alone!!!

I should harvest about 5 in a couple of months. I planted watermelons and cantalopes as well but since it is a jungle out there, I can't see if I have some success. We had a solid month of rain, and it retarded a lot of crops....I will taste my first cherry tomato from the garden tomorrow....I can't wait!
