Pumpkins

My pumpkin crop has not quite eventuated as I dreamed back in November and December when I first started chucking seeds in anywhere there was space. I blame the weather. Continue reading

A potential harvest after all AKA not such a bad run of luck after all.

Watering the garden tonight I came across some wonderful surprises! Looks like I might just get something to harvest after all!

I spotted these whilst I was watering a neighbouring tomato plant. Red Tommy Toes looking a little less than red at the moment.

And more Tommy Toes!

A female pumpkin flower ready to open. Mr Bee, oh Mr Bee! Come and pollinate my pumpkin please! There are 2 male flowers an inch before it on the stem ready to open too so I might be out there with a brush I think. Isn't that just a little weird when you think about it? ;)

I’m feeling a LOT better after finding all this potential harvest hiding out in my garden. I was feeling pretty flat about it all and trying hard to be philosophical but now I feel much happier. AND to boot, as I type this I just found a photo of Jasper and I in the local rag! It was taken at the Farmers Market not long after we’d finished playing our music and we were just buying some organic white nectarines.

Oh I do feel more positive now. Looking forward to tomorrow again. 🙂
