The mighty mystery vine that came up in the compost pile earlier this spring has turned out to be a pumpkin. It is growing over, under, around and through the fences and there are fruits of various shapes and sizes scattered over the vines. It is in a bit of a decline now, but I still hope to have the most sincere pumpkin patch come Halloween. 🙂
Here is the vine in its prime.
The leaves are huge. (I do not have small hands.)
One of many small pumpkins on the vines.
This pumpkin was hidden amongst the leaves until recently.
It is about 9 inches long and the largest so far.
I will post again once the pumpkins are ready for harvest. I also have pumpkin vines on the other side of the garden that I planted. I will add these to the next update.
