We’ve been trying for years to grow pumpkins, and we never had any luck in our partially shaded back yard. But now, with a full sun garden, we got this pretty little thing.
We also have some nice little heads of cabbage. The tomatoes and cucumbers continue to do very well. We still have quite a few beets and turnips, too. We decided that we probably won’t grow turnips again, though, because we don’t like to eat them very much. (I decided that last year, but it took Stephan until this year to agree with me!)
We’ve finally been getting rain more regularly, so we haven’t had to water the garden as much which has saved us a lot of time.
Now that school is back in session (for me, at least) it seems like the garden should be winding down, but I know we still have another couple of months of growing! I’m hoping for another pumpkin or other winter squash, though we had to pull out some of our acorn squash plants because they didn’t survive the drought. We still have corn at home that we hope will produce some nice ears since all the corn at the sunny garden was terrible.
I’m looking forward to more things we can preserve so we have homegrown veggies this winter.
