Some of you more regular readers may recall that back in January I did some work on my garden. Specifically the area around the back where the weeds had taken over. I stripped out all the rubbish and, amongst other things, planted some small pumpkin plants that I had removed from my in-laws’ vege patch.
Well, after two months, the pumpkin plant has taken over! Twice I have had to cut the plant as it was going over the fence into the neighbour’s yard! It has taken over the small path too!
There have been at least 20 small, yellow flowers that have come and gone but finally today I noticed that two small pumpkins have formed! Let’s hope that the caterpillars and birds stay away long enough to be able to harvest these!
