Isn’t it beautiful?

Why so proud of a pumpkin? Because we made this one in our very own garden!

Never having grown pumpkins before, I stuck the little seedlings in several different spots and wasn’t prepared for the length of those curly vines. They wrapped themselves around everything in sight. And despite all of the lovely yellow flowers, not many pumpkins have been growing. Dev and I were poking around trying to determine how many we had the other night. I was just about to pull out one of the vines that seemed to have nothing going for it when we found this one dangling in the air in the middle of one of my sedum plants.

One thought on “Isn’t it beautiful?”

  1. It is beautiful! We had pumpkin failure this year (although it’s been a good stealth cucumber year for us). We’ll have to try your method next summer.
