Every time I go outside, I head straight for my planting beds. I assess the backyard first, then venture on the the main “op”. It’s chronic, sometimes ten times a day, I look at the same pumpkin, the same chard, the same beans. Any new growth? Mostly no, but sometimes yes. I don’t know what I’m looking for exactly. I guess I want my plants to show me their eyes and mouths and tell me what’s up, that it will be a great season.
This is a pie pumpkin that I am compulsive about checking. I’m happy with its progress. I constructed tee-pee for it to trellis on. So far so good. I have counted up to seven fruit on it, however, each time I count I find one more or one less.
I check this bad boy ten times a day, expecting it to be doubled in size.
Babies, babies and more babies!
I love this plant.
