Cucurbita Jungle

I persuaded my husband to drag out the old dog kennel. (The dog kennel that the dog CLIMBED out of every time!!) I wanted to try my hand at vertical growing. I planted cucumbers, melons, and various winter squash around the inside. I got a pretty late start, but I do have quite a few "babies" which I hope will be ready before frost.
I planted both Musquee de Provence and Jarrahdale pumpkins. I think they both have these silver-veined leaves.

I was very surprised to see this fuzzy little watermelon. It is so cute!

This is Musquee de Provence. I am not quite sure why she is growing with her blossom end up, but she looks very regal!
