In getting our yard done for the winter I was trimming my pumpkin plants back because I only had ONE pumpkin!!! Will be doing things different next year! Hubby told me to trim off the extra flowers, so I was doing that. Then one day last week, he said I should cut the end of plant off after my one pumpkin! Did that. I had planted 4 plants, thinking I'd get several good sized pumpkins. Not! Anyway, we decided to cut off the other three plants that weren't doing anything, but growing longer!!! So I was following the plant back through the tall grass, etc. and snip, snip! BUT, I'd cut the plant off with the one and only pumpkin!!!!! darn!!!! If I'd successfully cut the correct plants, this one and only pumpkin would have grown larger! I'd so wanted a big pumpkin. So I picked my little pumpkin (green) off and put it under the step to see if it would turn color. I figured if Mr Frost came, if it was unter the step and still able to get sunlite, it wouldn't freeze, and maybe still turn orange!
So here's my pumpkin - at least it turned orange!! So much for growing my own!
I thought I had some pictures to show you the vines, but can't find them. Enough whining about my single pumpkin and I think I'll now get busy working on my sewing projects for today.
Hope you all have a great Friday ~ and weekend coming up! Hugs ~
