This year I planted some pumpkins on the upper tier of the garden thinking they would have some space and perhaps enjoy the view. I was hoping to get at least 4 or 5. I planted some cool seeds too - white ones and warty ones. After our wettest spring in recent history, they spouted and looked ready for action. I was sure of my success.
After all the view from up here is fabulous. Too bad the pumpkins were not inspired.
But alas, all is not right with the pumpkins. After achieving a certain size, they just stopped growing. And as for fruit, I have 1 tiny start that does not look like it will do much. I guess the soil up there just sucks. Oh well, next year I'll will try a different location. As for this year, guess I will have to go shopping.
