Pumpkin Time

Post  Pappy Slip on Tue 24 Jun 2014 - 6:39

Hello everyone! I'm still kicking......lol

Well my little red beans have done well and not much left to harvest. We are getting ready to clean out the box and plant pumpkins. My turkey crawl beans and white McCashion beans are climbing to the top of the trellis not ready to harvest yet. everything else is doing fine. I will try to post photos this week.

You don't let them stay in to continue producing? Or were they bush beans?

Right Marc, bush beans. My Honey is the garden director. If she wants pumpkins, something has to go...hehe. We had got lots of beans from them and they had ran there course. We have other beans getting ready to produce. I've designed a pumpkin trellis. Can't wait to see it up.

Ruth, I've only grew them in traditional gardens never in SFGing. Years ago I would plant them in a hill between corn. The vines ran everywhere and by fall pumpkins where plentiful. I'm building a trellis this time. I'm curious to see what happens. We cleaned out a bean box yesterday and I plan on adding a bag of miracle grow to it. Spice it up some! In a few days I will plant my seed. This weekend I hope to see my trellis go up. I will be watching from my sun room. My honey won't let me out. for some reason she thinks I will hurt myself....what the heck..I'm only 87.

That sounds like fun to watch the trellis go up... and then watch the beans climb.
When is your first frost?  Or do you get them down there Smile
I have had a hard time getting my winter squash    (pumpkins sorts...) to get going...
I am hoping that I am not too late getting them in now
My first first frost is October 1st.
I got a new trellis this year for beans, what fun

GWN, I have a trellis covered with beans, this new trellis is for pumpkins. It will be more substantial than a bean trellis. I will post pics in a few days.

Anyone remember where that fantastic photo of winter squashes growing on a cattle panel arch is located? It is not a SFG photo, but someone found it and posted it in one of the Topics.

I just wish I could get some female flowers on my pumpkins.  They have been blooming like crazy for a month, but no girls.   Sad   They are climbing the cattle panel nicely though.

Me too.  I have about 6 pumpkin plants, probably 30 male flowers and not a single female.  Pumpkin plants are running everywhere but no pumpkins.  Of course they have almost all been invaded by SVB so they won't last too long.

I just pulled my first SVB death.  A lovely butternut squash with 2 little squash on it.  I'm going to the drug store today and getting another syringe and innoculating all my squash/pumpkins with BT.  I have the bottom stems wrapped on a lot of my plants.

I got some syringes on the way home from work a couple days ago so I will begin inoculating them this weekend.  Does BT get old.  Mine is a few years old now and I want to inject it but not sure if it is still viable.  Also, do you mix it to the strength on the label and then inject that mixture.

Pappy, sorry we have high jacked you thread.  Waiting for pictures of the trellis.

Well we are at least still posting about pumpkins.  I don't know on the age of the BT but I have fresh this year. Mine froze over the winter.  I dilute according to the instructions because I don't know any better.
