|Justin with the pumpkins which made a very pretty autumn decoration.|
Recall I mentioned hybrid white pumpkins? I thought I’d talk about them today. They were a present from my son Justin’s speech therapist, actually just the vines from which these grew. She had started too many plants indoors and knew I was a gardening nut, so, she brought over her extra seedlings. Wasn’t that awfully nice of her? Got about 5-6 really magnificent ghostly pumpkins from those 3 vines. Even have a picture of them with one of the kids. Better look it up. (I did after about an hour of hunting through all the picture we ever took!)
Those vines, like so many other vines, crept out of the garden and climbed up the grape arbor, grew through the lattice and under the arbor too. That was supposed to be my reading spot but as the vines took over there, I had to find another one. I didn’t think they would grow very well under there. There was substantial shade under the lattice, but they did wonderfully. I figure, you simply can’t stop a good vine, unless you’re willing to hack it to death. ~Horrors!~ I would never do that.
