A garden above

 
This is a hot dog stand near my Mother-in-Law's house. We went to pick up some food and I couldn't resist taking a shot of this. I have no idea what this vegetable is....I thought it was a cucumber or a squash or something in that family but I have never seen either of those this shape. Maybe it is from gravity? The vine was all through the patio roof and hangs down off the trellis. It was just unbelievable to see. Thought you might like it!

  2. The most beuatiful place the eat an hot dog I´ve ever seen.
    I reckon that´s a cucumber trying to grow himself into something big... who knows, maybe he heard about being in the Guinness Book of Records thus avoiding ending in someones salad?

  14. It looks like a really big bean. Maybe they compost with left over hot dogs.

  16. Your hot dog "stand" is one of the classiest I've ever seen! The veggie looks like the pale green variety of zucchini I see at the market farmers in summer, which are much longer/larger than the regular ones.
