All the 2017 pumpkins are now planted – indoors and outdoors. After a difficult germination (we are blaming the seed compost we used) the plants grew well.
For the indoor plants the next milestone is pollination where we select the female flower we want to grow on and the male flower that we wish to cross pollinate it with. The outdoor plants have to take their chances with what our bees decide is best for them.
Keeping up with the weeding and watering are the ongoing challenges until harvest time.
