Same goes here as far as length of growing season. Planted some edible
gourds today. And have Heatwave II tomatoes coming up, just the cotlydons
so far but true leaves aren't far behind. If we have another mild winter we
will be harvesting tomatoes and chiles up into January and February again.

You didn't grow those Green Thighs zukes did you Harry? If one of those
ever crosses with your Giant Mutant Squashoid the offspring will be worse
than kudzu.
