With a hard frost on the way, we picked the squash. Got 25 of them, left the tiny ones. Fed 3 smaller ones to the sheep and 2 damaged ones to the chickens. BJ put these on the porch.

We picked all the green tomatoes too, even found 3 beautiful ripe ones. Fried green tomatoes tonight! A lot of them look big enough to go ahead and ripen. A lot are just small, I’m going to chop and sauté them in bacon grease for the chickens.

I planted Giant Pink Banana Squash out of curiosity. I wanted to make pies and have something for sheep treats. I had 3 plants. They sprawled out, went over the fence and up a tree. I picked 6 squash, not bad. I made pie and pumpkin bread, delicious! After a hot dry summer, we finally got rain. The vines revived and grew more squash! Lots more! I picked them and brought them in to cure. Made more pumpkin bread.

Would y’all believe the GPBS is going for a THIRD round? There’s probably 10 out there about 15” long and growing every day. Frost is very late this year, but sooner or later it will show up. I don’t think round 3 will mature before frost comes, so I’ve been giving the sheep treats. I chop one up in small pieces and give to the sheep. They love it!

I will share seeds with anybody that wants some. @frustratedearthmother you need to plant these! Lol

I would love to have some seeds! We tried giving our sheep Dickinson pumpkins last year and they turned their noses up. The pigs love them, of course. But it sounds like this variety would work for both!

I will try to figure out how to send a private message, @Baymule....

I got your PM and will gladly send you seeds!

@Baymule, I’d love some seeds. I have a collection of pumpkins that I feed to the chickens. I’ll have to see if the goats like them. Thanks for offering to share.
Send me a PM with your name and address and I will send you some seeds.
