Too many pumpkins?

 Here is the Deadwood Cemetery pumpkin patch update for 2022. Decided to plant them off to the side this year and use the planting box for other things like jalapenos, bananna peppers and tomato.

As you can see the pumpkins are doing quite well in their new area- in fact maybe too well.

I did try to thin them after sprouting, leaving only about 6 vines thinking that they would have enough room. You would think after all these years I would know better. It is fun watching them run wild and just let them do their thing. Already have about 6 pumpkins of various shapes and sizes so I think this year will probably be a bumper crop. I think in the fall I will have to do some trips into the cattails to find the rouge ones!
