Today I had a few minutes to check out the garden before work, and it was nice to see a lot of pumpkin flowers open. Also noticed that Wanda is expanding beyond the borders of the raised bed. Cosmo, the other pumpkin, is a lot smaller than Wanda, but he does have a flower or two.
When I got home tonight, I moved Wanda so she’s trailing inside the bed, but I’m guessing it won’t be long before she stretches out again. She’s definitely a pumpkin without borders, although I suppose that’s what pumpkins do, right?
Rain update: An hour after I posted last night about waiting for the rain, we actually did get a small shower. Less than a half-inch, but at least it’s something. There are more rain chances yet tonight and again tomorrow, but they’re really spotty.
