By Sunday afternoon at 4:00 all of the pumpkins were planted...all 330 of them!
I said to Adam today, "Do you realize that I planted every single pumpkin seed in the garden??" and he said, "I wouldn't be saying that if I were you until they actually started growing!"
So if they don't grow, I'm going to blame it on something else...water, Zondra helping me, the rototilling, the heat...something! If they do grow...it was all me baby! But really, I could never have planted the seeds if Adam didn't spend so many hours doing back breaking rototilling. And Saturday morning went a lot fast with Zondra (Adam's niece) helping me.
We put the first ones in a little later than last year, about 2 weeks. We do, however, think this will end up being a good thing because last year many were ready in August and although they keep for 8 weeks after they are bleached, it is just a little early for ripe pumpkins! This year we also spaced the rows wider so we are hoping it will be easier to turn pumpkins once they start growing and also that we will have a greater yield because they will have more room to grow. Of course I will keep you updated!
