Sorry it has been so long since I have posted anything. My computer has been out of service for a while. I am back now and ready to tell you about my pumpkins.
I had a good tun out of pumpkins and gourds this year. Not as many as last year, but that was intentional. Last year was a bit overkill. This year I planted a variety of gourds and pumpkins. I am already ready for spring so I can start over again. The large one was 80 pounds. I was hoping for over 85 because my biggest last year was that big.
Last year was good for me when it came to pumpkins. I had a ton of gourds and pumpkins. This year I have not planted quite so many, but still have high hopes for getting the one. Last year I not only had a lot of them but, I also had a HUGE pumpkin. 85 lbs. to be exact. It took 3 of us to get it on the bathroom scale. I just had to know how big that thing was. I have never been so proud of something I have grown. I loved it when people would comment about it or ask if I bought it.
Some of the many pumpkin/gourds from last year
The 85 lb.er. I have to say the picture doesn’t do it justice
And… this years plant that will give me a even bigger one (I hope).
I have more plants, but I have a feeling about this one. LOL
