|Jarrahadale Pumpkin on dried lavender.|
Out in the garden the dried grape leaves under the pumpkins have decayed and the squash are in danger of rotting or getting chewed up by insects. The lavender straw has been placed beneath some of the pumpkins while dried thyme is cushioning others. If the herbs do as advertised, this will not only support the squash as they mature, but insects will be repelled by the strong (wonderful) aroma.

Note: I stumbled upon a great herb combination of lavender and chocolate mint. When the hose rolls over these neighbors, the scent is terrific.
