The two gourd plants have grown together and become one large patch.
I've got about 4 different sized gourds coming along nicely!
My one jack-be-little plant. I did try to grow a second one to help with pollination but it just didn't happen.
This week was the first time it had male and female flowers open at the same time so hopefully I'll have some super cute pumpkins growing soon..
Female flowers of pumpkin,squash, zucchini and watermelon ( maybe others but I'm yet to learn about them) will have the little fruits forming below the flower as shown here.
My butternut pumpkin patch.
Its taking over the entire veggie garden!
We had a lot of rain in early January so now everything is growing crazy fast.
My two raspberry beds have lots of new canes coming up, this one came up outside his garden bed!
Some of my small shining light watermelons!
I've got about 4 good sized ones growing, fingers crossed they'll be good.
The biggest of my small shining light watermelons.
The skin is supposed to be a dark green so I guess these have a while yet to mature.
This summer has been relatively mild so I've really been able to enjoy the veggie patch so far.
Thanks for reading
