Pumpkin patch 2016

Well, 2016 has been a pretty good year weather wise and the patch seems to be flourishing as a result.
Although there are no female flowers (or pumpkins) yet, Im optimistic that we will get a few this season. New soil put in this year as well as a bit of fertilizer seems to agree with them.
Fingers crossed- no sign of the dreaded vine boarer yet. With the 4th of July in the rearview mirror, its time to start thinking autumn thoughts......


  1. That close to an open field, how do you keep the rabbits and animals from eating the gourds?

    1. Critters pretty much leave the pumpkins alone Mark, although the one year that I planted corn for the stalks, once the ears came out, the masked bandit raccoons tore all the stalks down! That was the end of that-but they left the pumpkins alone.

  2. Wow - that's one big pumpkin vine. I hope you get some beauties.

  3. Looking great, good October boy...!!
