Loam, a very nice idea for a prairie garden. I can imagine that it is a nice meditative garden. 

My home sold! We will have our last family gathering there today, Sunday, to mark the end of the old and the beginning of the new.

What a nice view to have for your time there.

Today I was at the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, for a patient and research summit on the uncommon cancer that I am treated for.  That makes it difficult to post about my garden.  My time here is limited, but here is a kind of garden I walked through.  They've replanted about a city block size park with native prairie, with nice winding walks and a border of lawn so thd walk remains clear, or so it looks nice.  There were no bison or other native animals, but it was still nice to visit and meander through.  I stopped and thought about what this area must have looked like, a century or two ago.

Joan, they ate my strawberry plants too.  Other plants in my deer's favorite location, that they dont touch:  Rabbit ears (Stachys byzantia), German iris, Siberian iris, Rudbeckia, peonies, Crocosmia, cosmos, violets,  mints, borage, lemon balm, potatoes, chives, garlic chives, oriental poppies.  The ate bachelors buttons at first, but stopped.

Randy, this is more than enough squash for us.  I still have some cooked squash puree in freezer from last year.  What do you do with yours?

Daniel, your squash photo could have come from me. For some reason, I didn't plant my favorite acorn squash this year. However, my SIL has plenty. I did get some Delicata--another fave.

Loam, I like your information of what deer eat and don't eat in your recent planting helps me know what to add to my seed and bulb order for next spring. 

Deer eat the Spanish bluebells, four o'clock, and muscari;

not daffodils, peonies, or echinacea.

Two deer came to eat on the terraces this afternoon; we watched quietly until they finished. They didn't touch the peony leaves, the gaillardia, echinacea, salvia; they ate strawberry leaves (there are no strawberries). We will have to protect the strawberries next spring.

I love a good pumpkin pie!

Comment by Loam Gnome on September 20, 2018 at 9:57pm

Cooked, they look and taste just like pumpkin.  Delicious pies!  My grandmother's sister grew them 50 years ago, and they do well in Pacific NW.  This is the 3rc time I've grown them here.

They look great!

Never heard of pink squash before. Is the flavour different?

Comment by Loam Gnome on September 20, 2018 at 9:28pm

Pink Banana Squash, Winter Luxuey Pumpkin, some Buttetnut Squash that didn't grow much, and some volunteer squashes that might be crosses of zucchinis with pumpmins.

Some daffodils to give hope for Spring.
