Take at look at this pumpkin plant. This single plant takes up nearly as much space as nine plants did last year.
It’s everywhere and it’s getting itself involved with lots of other plants–everything from the watermelons to the crab grass. But I don’t mind because I love dramatic plants and I love saying to my husband every day, “Would you look at how big the pumpkin has gotten?”
To-date thare are two fruits, and they look gorgeous. I almost prefer the complexity of greens in a new pumpkin to the monotone orange of a mature fruit.
Also, we call this Jacson’s pumpkin patch. He doesn’t do much yet, but it will always be his and he can cultivate his own pumkins soon enough.
