Punkins Gone Wild!

Post  B00kemdano on 7/1/2013, 10:00 am

They're taking over the yard!!  Very Happy  And that's ok with me!  But my neighbors think I'm bananas for cutting the grass around the vines with scissors.  cyclops 





We're really excited about them.  We have one that's the size of a volleyball, and a few babies!  One of which, I pollinated this morning.

Hee hee. I never would have thought of pumpkins as good candidates for square foot gardening.

I reminds me of the time we thought bird house gourds would be a way to fill in a gap in our grape arbor.

This one set fruit low on the vine so I just strung it to the side of a bed to keep the lawn guy from weedwhacking it.  Pics on 26 Jun.  Pumpkin is now big enough to rest on the ground.



 This vine had lots of blooms but didn't set fruit by the time I strung it to the top of a cattle panel.  Just checked on it yesterday and I've got 2 tiny pumpkins resting on the top.

Love the pumpkin vine pics everyone! We're trying mini pumpkins for the first time, but likely planted too late - we'll see. Now that we're having a heat wave, they've been growing quickly. They have a few leaves each now. *fingers crossed*

We love growing pumpkin at my house. Every year we have had 2 plants tops! This year my son convinced me/ pulled my leg and we have 5 plants:shock: . They are all dwarf variety so we shall see how it goes. Next year you all should try sending the vines up trellises. They are so cool!!!

Last year, our pumpkins were much less successful.  At the rate these are growing this year, I can't imagine how big a trellis would have to be!
