    The UFO squash are call patty pan squash. Yep. Sick of squash. Fortunately or unfortunately, mother nature is starting to ravage by crop so I will be spared to fight another year.

    I usually harvest next year's seed from the patty pan. The yellow squash I am not sure if it grows true from seed. The patty pan I grow is an heirloom variety that does allow for that. It is getting to the point that that the blooms are rotting on the plant. Supposed to be mid 90's most of next ten days.

    I'm finally starting to get some ripe cucumbers. The tomatoes are still green. The bell peppers lost their blossoms and I'm not seeing much going on with those.

    Me too. Cucumbers have been coming in . Most of my tomatoes are still green. I picked one yesterday that was orange- close enough! I got tired of waiting! My peppers aren't doing well this year. There are some good sized peppers on the plants but they aren't developing all the way.

    This year has been a bust for us. We sowed seed for late summer and fall crops but they are not coming up like they use to. Only a few came up.

    Will just buy transplants I guess.
