Objects in the backyard

Yesterday we built the most over-engineered sawhorse.  Should make sawing up next year's firewood a lot easier than it has been.
Late last year I "borrowed" some seeds from a friend who'd brought them back from Germany - she suffered the two hours getting through quarantine with them, I've suffered through months wondering if they are going to produce.  Well - they have produced and are still doing so.  Apparently they are late developers.
Small zucca lunga da Napoli

Average zucca lunga da pergola

Slightly larger zucca lunga da Napoli - 60cm long and 70cm circumference!
Now - the big question is when should they be harvested - don't want the fruit rotting, do want seeds to grow a massive jungle again next year!
