Which One is Not Like the Other?

7.21.2012

Remember that game which one is not like the other? Well, I was picking our garden the other day and one of these is definitely not like the other.

Can you guess which one?

Not sure what happened to this poor squash. I know we will not be eating it.

Here are some more pics from the garden this past week.



Soon we will be picking fresh Silver Queen corn.





The cantaloupe is starting to look like a cantaloupe.

Not sure why this watermelon split. Oh, well we have four more.

Okra still coming in little by little.

Basil in a pot on the deck.

I need to make a pot of tomato basil soup.
Yum!

Happy weekend!

  1. Although the squash has bumps they are usually fine to eat, just cut it open and see.
    Your garden is looking great!

  2. your garden looks amazing, really beautiful, too bad about the watermelon, that bumpy squash looks like the ones you buy in the market in the Fall for decorating, maybe a seed slipped in by mistake, either that or its very sick.

  3. That sure is a funny looking squash that may be fine to eat, but somehow I wouldn't want to eat it either! Your garden keeps on growing beautifully!

  4. The squash is suffering from Mosaic disease

    You watermelon cracked open due to heavy rain or watering right before harvest.

    Everything looks great!

  5. What bounty!
    That poor little squash looks like the gourds I buy at Thanksgiving for the harvest table decorations.

  6. Wonder if that squash will dry and mix in with your fall pumpkins? We are growing potatoes, watermelon, tomatoes, and squash ALL in the compost pile.

  7. You know, those are the kind I get in the fall to decorate with, more like a gourd. Beautiful garden you have growing Kim! We have had different kinds of lettuce for a while but just got zucchini and cucumbers today. Not sure my cantaloupe will make. I'm thinking the melons will split if they get too ripe...but the my mom is the gardener. Wonderful that you are enjoying fresh veggies:-)

  8. Your garden has been producing like crazy! I've never seen a squash quite like that before. That's funny! I hated to throw out some of our squash and okra that we picked but didn't get to eat while we were on vacation. We came back to our first red tomatoes though. Jimmy said next year we won't plant so many peppers and cucumbers. We have TOO MANY! Enjoy your cantaloupe, watermelon and corn when they're ready. I bet they'll be delicious!

  9. Your garden is coming along nicely, Kim! We are just getting some okra, too. Although your bumpy squash has a lot of nice texture, I don't think it'll last long enough to use in fall decorating!

  10. Your garden looks fabulous, Kim. Maybe the heat affected the watermelon? The bumpy squash looks like a gourd. In the fall I usually pick a bumpy one to put in a basketful. xo

  11. I doubt your squash is diseased, especially since the rest are probably fine on the plant. Fertilization probably got a little screwed up--we had a few wacky squashes ourselves until the whole plant succumbed to squash vine borer.

  12. The veges look so good. The garden looks great. The watermelon is probably not getting enough water and thus it cracked. One could probably google it and find out for sure. Thanks for sharing.

  16. The garden looks great! The squash however.....:):) Maybe try to dry it for Fall decorations. It has cooled off here somewhat but going back to the 90's soon so yardwork is on the agenda today! XO, Pinky

  17. That crazy squash looks like it cross pollinated with something else. Darn that the watermelon split, the deer will step on them here to break them open and it's so maddening. Your garden looks fantastic, Kim.

  18. Kim you garden looks great! I can see you've had some good veggies this summer. The squash is pretty cool looking I must say. I can't believe it's almost the end of July already! Hugs, Linda

  19. Ummm..what time will the tomato basil soup be ready? I'll bring my own napkin! Yes..I would hate to eat that poor squash-what it has might be contagious and then your blog would have to take a whole different direction. xo Diana

  25. Kim, I don't know how you find the time and energy to do all that you do. This is a bountiful garden. That squash looks like it could be an ornamental gourd. ;-)

  26. Kim,
    That squash looks like the variety I see in the fall for decorating.Too bad it will not last that long.
    Your garden is amazing! We have basil too.One of our favorites.But the Japanese beetles are starting to eat it.I am trying to figure out what to do.I don't remember them doing this last year.

  27. Beautiful garden. I am so sad the heat wave took a hit on ours, and then all my cukes and squash got the blight and we lost them. :( But the tomatoes and green beans are going crazy. :)

  28. We are in such a drought here in KS. Also about to enter our 3rd week in a row of temps over 100 degrees each day. Needless to say my garden looks nothing like yours any more!
