Wilbur: Are you awake, Charlotte?
Wilbur: What's that?.
Charlotte: This is my egg sac, my magnum opus, my great work..."
Although it's certainly not as personal to me as the egg sac was to Charlotte, I have a magnum opus growing in the garden this summer! Everytime I go out to check on it, the size seems to have increased by a third! It's magnificient!
It's a Boston Marrow squash! I was prompted to grow them, after hearing in a gardening seminar, that most of the canned pumpkin you buy at the grocery stores is actually Boston Marrow squash. This one is about 15" long and as big around as a large dinner plate! Here it is in relation to my 2" wide camera lens cap.
it's a beauty!
