Hope all the haunts are at their creepiest
and the weather holds out for all.
As we roll through September on our way to October,
it's time to harvest this years pumpkin patch. Even though we went through a record draught
this year, the patch was pretty darn successful. I lost probably another 10-15 pumpkins due to vine borers
but I have learned to expect that now.
It's interesting to me how all the seeds came from the same pumpkin last year but we have such a variety
of colors and textures. Fun with genetics.
Now they will just finish curing in the sun and wait for the carvings!
It seems like things in this neck of the woods are finally returning to somewhat normal.
A lot better than last year, thats for sure. I'm a bit tardy but here is my patch update for 2021.
The boxed bed that I usually plant in is not doing so well. Not sure why the leaves are yellowing
and the growth is minimal. No sign of vine borers yet, so I'm thinking the soil is to blame.
The random seeds that I plant in the ground are growing like crazy. I already have 4 pumpkins
and the leaves on these vines are over 2 feet in length- quite a contrast to the ones in the box.
