As I mentioned in previous posts, I was up at sunrise (damn roosters!) and went out to enjoy the very cool weather and take some pictures around the farm. This is my third post on the pumpkins. Here's a link to the first blog post and here is a link to the second blog post. All the pumpkins are turning orange now. The photo above is one of the miniature pumpkins.
Right now I'm so proud of my beautiful Passiflora edulis, commonly known as the Passion Fruit or Passion flowering vine. This is my third year growing it and as you can see, it is now bearing fruit for the first time. It also quickly overwhelmed the trellis, so Ron built an extended trellis nearly ten feet tall. Nothing fancy--It's just a tall post with some wire fencing attached. It will be covered in foliage, flowers, and fruit in a few weeks though .
A few weeks ago when I made my previous post of soybean fields surrounding the farm, the bean pods had not yet formed. The bean fields are really tall right now and are loaded with soybeans. I took this photo a couple of weeks ago and now you can see the fuzzy pods have formed. I have no idea when the beans will be harvested, but probably sometime in September. The bean fields are still very beautiful, as you can imagine.

The watermelons are coming along nicely. This photo shows three different sizes from that of about the size of a cherry tomato, to a melon the size of a softball, to the largest one--almost as big as basketball.
