Pumpkin Puberty

My little Cheyenne pumpkin plant, small though it is, has tiny little flower buds on it! For size comparison, notice the few-day-old spinach seedling on the right. I know what pumpkin flowers look like when fully developed, so these Tiny Tims have a ways to go before I stick my Q-tip in them, but it gives me hope that I'll get pumpkins! Somehow.

Where will they grow? There's nowhere to put the fruit...! Oh no... I guess by the time I have to worry about it, the beans will be done producing and I can get them out of the way, but the tomato will still be there.

Luckily, the potato died, so there won't be a big bush in the way on that side. I'm working on replacements, but I will keep them in a three-gallon bucket instead. Yeah, they could use more space, but I'm experimenting.

  1. This is going to be so funny! People will ask what that interesting wall art is and it will be your pumpkings being twined around the walls. Too awesome!

  2. Hm, squash, pumpkin, and grapes growing all over my wall... I'm working on a net-like thing at the moment to help train them up. :-D I hope it works!

    I'm never leaving this apartment. Too much work would be involved to move the plants.

  3. Heh, in a way I'm glad my pumpkin died, because the trellis I'd made was too weak. I picked branches in the wood outside, and they're sturdy but not thick enough to carry ripe pumpkins. I don't know what I was thinking.

    Sorry about the potato! I tried growing potatoes in buckets - worked out well.
