It’s early, but I think pumpkins just might be my veggie of choice this fall. Don’t get me wrong, I really, really want fall tomatoes, but pumpkins are just looking more likely at the moment.
Wanda (yes, I’ve named one of my pumpkins) is three or four times her size of two weeks ago (photo above, today on top, Aug. 17 on bottom). Overnight, she stretched into the adjoining raised bed. No doubt the inch-and-a-half of rain we got late this afternoon helped.
And the yellow leaves on the second pumpkin plant have been replaced by a bunch of new green ones. I wouldn’t be surprised if it started making a move on Wanda soon. That’s one wrestling match I’m looking forward to.
