After months of wonder, worry, ups and downs of my giant pumpkin growing season I could take it no more. The weather even though it has not rained yet has been getting cold, the growth of the pumpkins have slowed to a point I’m not sure if its growing anymore and a large section with powdery mildew I decided to start removing and clearing the patch. Here are the final two pumpkin pulled from the patch.
Not too bad for my drama filled patch.
With them out of the patch, all that stress seems so long age. I have two baby giants to show at the local brownies and then it’s chopped and fed off to the cows. Seeds will be collected and the thoughts of next years patch are already floating around in my head.
I’m now sitting waiting by the mail box for my next seed delivery of giant onions and cabbage, this is my first try at these two but once bitten by the Giant Growing Bug its hard it stop!!!
Hope you will come back and see how l get on with my new gardening adventure!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
