Squash Candles for Thanksgiving

Here's a squash-melon cross that produced prolifically in our in-ground garden. These babies must be hardy, because they didn't get much light.

Art used a spade bit on his drill, marked to the depth of the tea candle insert, to cut these out. Nice job!

They'll grace our family Thanksgiving table along with whatever's pretty out in the yard--rose hips, English ivy, sage, and yellow maple leaves.

Enjoy the day, whatever you do.

Hey there!

My name is Ashley Murphy and I am a Columbia College Chicago student researching urban gardens in Chicago. If you are available, I would love to ask you some questions as well as request some pictures of some of the urban gardening you and your company has been involved in. Please let me know by email ( if this is at all possible!

Thanks so much!
