Well, as you can see, our pumpkin vine is looking pretty dead, this is the sign that it is time for the pumpkins to be picked.
The kids helped pull out their favorites.
We hadn’t really planned to pull everything out today, but there were enough big watermelons, we thought, heck why not.
Once you get a few out, the whole vine is ready to go. SO in a matter of an hour the whole front garden was out. And we had a porch full of pumpkins. All home grown.
My Marco Polo recap:
4 plants, 7 pumpkins, 9 watermelons.
One good year of gardening.
