My Snake Gourd

I may not have had one single tomato sandwich from my garden this summer but I did have this.....

Isn't he sweet?  Just in time for Halloween!
Grown from seed too!

Ha! first to comment!
I just had a read through your blog. You garden does not sound as bad as you think.We more often have the opposite problem here with not enough rain.I enjoyed reading through here. Especially the "Stand by Me" video.
Beanie baby is very cute. Do you eat them? How? Are they also called New Guinea beans?

You're right Linda - it's not so bad. The only thing that was a disappointment is the tomatoes. Everything else is just for fun (thus "Experimental Farmer"). It was just a little odd that I had started a blog about my garden and it was a bust. Oh well, c'est la vie.

The real farmers around here truly suffered though. When I was picking up my Halloween pumpkins last week I was talking to the farmer about how things had been for him this summer. "Terrible." he said. He told me that he had planted 3 rows of over 150 yards of zucchini and harvested on 3 zucchini! Now that's a statement.

The beanie baby? Are you referring to the painted one in this post? If so, that's a snake gourd. Almost 4 feet long and over 8 lbs. I believe they can be eaten but I've never eaten one. This is the first one I've ever grown.

Yay! I like how you make the snake gourd like a snake. In my country where I came from (philippines) we called this gourd "upo" and we cooked this too with shrimp or chicken.
