2017 pumpkin growing season over?

Due to the heavy rains and extensive flooding in our area, it looks like the pumpkin crop of 2017 has bit the dust. Don't know if these plants can survive as I've never had experienced anything like this, but it does not look good. Looks like I'll be buying Jacks this fall!

Another growing season begins

So another growing season is under way and the pumpkins
are doing what they do best. A bit of a gamble this year since the seeds I saved from last season were a bit damp and when I took them out this spring they were a bit moldy. So it was off to the store to by some pre packed seeds. Never had good luck with them before so I am skeptical about this years crop.
So far so good- got some Connecticut field and Jack o lantern planted. At least they are flowering before the 4th and thats always a good sign.
