City squash

I do so applaud the urban vegetable gardener. S/he’s working against the odds. This squash/pumpkin (viney, not a single localized plant, so not zucchini?) is thriving from its setting between sidewalk and street.

    I was amazed when I walked around Berkeley at how much vegetation there was on the tiny little lots. Not that it was all vegetable gardens. Even if I hadn’t been in a total daze the whole time I was there, I probably wouldn’t have known what the plants were. — Black Thumb Banana ;-)
