Pat and I are hoping for another bumper pumpkin crop this fall. Right after last Thanksgiving, we tossed our display pumpkins and gourds into the front yard flower beds. We didn’t get any sprouts from the new bed. A likely explanation might be the bed's tenants. The bed is riddled with tunnels. Three large pumpkin plants probably were like a 24 hour grocery store to the chipmunks.Luckily, everything seems to have sprouted in the other bed. Now if I could just remember what we tossed where. It would have been too organized to take a picture, so true to form, I didn’t. I know we had a pink pumpkin, a cinderella pumpkin, your run of the mill orange pumpkins and a whole bunch of gourds. I guess we’ll have to wait. I have convinced Pat that even though we have triple the source pumpkins, we can manage the vines so the other plants in the beds and the pumpkins can all coexist in harmony. When Pat says “uh huh”, that means she buys into my vision, doesn’t it?
