The tromboncini have welcomed August with a fanfare. And now, they’re threatening to take over.
Thanks to starter plants from Daniel Dejean, we now have vines encroaching on our house.
But the fruits of the plant are delicious, tastier than zuchinni. They’re huge, enough to feed the army we’ll need to defend the house against the vines.
As Daniel says, and illustrates, it’s the “hit of the summer.”

Dear Chip — From the looks of some of your garden, you seem to be having a great time. I expect that the next time you visit Los Gatos you will bring your shovel along! You will be welcomed with open arms! Love, Rhoda
