I need help. I'm not afraid to admit it. I've got a problem. With pumpkins!
Today to celebrate Outdoor Wednesday, I'm sharing pictures of my vegetable garden and peach trees in the early morning sun...before it hits 103 degrees! Seriously - 103!
Baby Boy was desperate to grow a giant pumpkin last year. We bought seeds and planted them and we were amazed when flowers started to bloom and almost everyone of the flowers had a tiny green "pumpkin" at the bottom. Then we watched with dismay as each and every one of them shriveled up and fell off.
So again this year we planted pumpkins. We have flowers blooming, but what can I do to keep them from dying? Someone advised me to thin out the flowers to just one and let the plant give all its energy to that one flower. Sounds sensible to me, but I could use some more advice from anyone else who has had success growing pumpkins! Help!
The good news is that our pumpkins are attracting lady bugs! Don't you love those little pest eaters?
I just love the golden glow of peaches! "Peach, oh peach, you are so sweet...you are the one I'm going to eat!" Good pictures...bad poetry!
Thanks for visiting...and don't forget to head over to A Southern Daydreamer to see what else is happening on this lovely Outdoor Wednesday!
