Here are my two pumpkin vines that I was afraid wouldn't grow because I planted my garden so late this year. My D.H. claims these to be HIS pumpkins, I am not sure how that works, since I plant them, weed them, water them, etc. His theory is that since he ASKED me to plant them they are his special plants. Luckily this is just my extra garden space that I use for my rhubarb (planted along the back edge) and potatoes on the other side, so there is room enough...... unless they get too crazy. Hmmmmm....maybe planting them on top of my old manure pile wasn't such a good idea.
This is the center section of my regular garden 70 x 30, consisting of 5 rows of green beans (one can never have too many green beans), 57 pepper plants, 40 something tomato plants, carrots, cantaloupe, cucumbers, watermelon, and some other stuff that I can't remember right now. Before you think that I have totally lost my mind, there is a logical reason why I grow so much stuff. I take produce to our local farmer's market every Saturday along with my yarn (not spun by me), roving, baked goods, eggs and my polymer clay figurines... Now that I see that in writing, I guess that really doesn't make me sound less crazy, it makes me sound attention deficit! I do have a lot of different interests, combined with the fact that I can't sit still....okay, attention deficit, whatever.
If you were wondering how the Iowa corn crop is coming along......
This is an 8 foot long 2x4 next to the fence post!
