Less Noise, More Green: Christmas in August?

Christmas in August?

Is this a new ornament for the Christmas tree? 

Actually, its a buttercup squash growing quite happily vining around an abravitae. Having a very small yard I have to take advantage of any opportunity for vertical growth! I have a row of abravitaes along a fence and have had good luck training winter squash up and around the shrubs. The fun comes when its time to harvest and I look behind the shrubs to see what I have growing on the backside. Often I'm in for a productive surprise!

 Look at the color of this eggplant! This color was not on the seed packet, but I'll take it.

My bell peppers are starting to change colors.  Right now I have orange, yellow, cream, green and black. So pretty.

See you in the garden,
