Winter season is upon us. I am home recovering from my new titanium hip. What fun !! Hey the last time I had my hip replaced was 2009 and in 2010 I grew the GPC’s best squash. Maybe it’s a good luck charm.

I did manage some fun before surgery. Val, Alex and I got out for some deer hunting while Alex came home for the first Saturday of the PA whitetail season. It was a good father son bonding day. Alex took a nice 8 point.

Val and I got out for some ice fishing. Well I stayed in the cabin and watched Val on the ice. No time to slip now.

I am trying that winter challenge tomato thing. Not sure how they should be looking but it is a good test run to see if some of my seed would germinate. The trick was to get something to pollinate and it looks like I have few sets. Now I am just going to water , prune, feed a little and see what I get. I won’t be stressing out over them for sure. This is one on my 3.51

And a nice lumpy one on my 3.2 I also have one of my Momate plants that is producing a real stocky plant. It was a later thought so I am looking for some blossoms now. It is sort of nice to not worry about a wood chuck sneaking into the patch or a deer making his dinner out of the plants. Let’s hope this winter passes quickly.

Winter Challenge equals getting out of bed when it’s 4 degrees. This is the view of my pumpkin patch from my front porch. In the center is where I grew my 5.37 Momate tomato.

I have a couple growing for the indoor challenge. Probably about 5 pounds lighter than my Momate.

The bigger of the two. Grown on one of my 3.51 from last year. I think I will stick to outdoor growing. I wouldn’t want to figure out the electric bill for the effort. Come on spring. There is a warrant out for Pennsylvania’s weather forecasting groundhog Phil.

A good chuckle is always a nice way to start your day.

Winter challenge. Time is up to slice the girls off. They look good in their winter spa! One is a looker and the other on the lumpy side. I have no clue what the weight will be.

Quite a pair.

Lol. K. Here is the heavier one. As Ricky Bobby said, “if your not first your last “. Not too impressive. I think I will stick to the outdoor growing.
