Prolific Pumpkins

The pumpkins take over.

We have had so much rain over the last month or so and the temperatures have been warm.  Ideal growing weather for everything on the farm and in the garden.

After a couple of weeks absence from the vege garden while we were busy doing other summer jobs, I returned to find the pumpkins were taking over the place.

They have climbed up over the lemon trees,

and have completely swamped the black currants.

It's like living in a science fiction movie.  He who hesitates in the garden will be grown over!  

I think it's time to show them who's boss and create a little balance.


  1. Wow, they are taking over!! Your lemons look wonderful. Thanks for sharing your garden, it looks warm on this cold morning.. Have a happy day!

  2. Your garden is doing very well. Wish I could afford to live there when it is winter in Texas.

  3. Love the foliage. So green and lush. I think you will have a bumper crop :-)

  7. Oh my gosh! What are you going to do with all those Pumpkins??

    1. My daughter counted 30 pumpkins so far. I guess we will be living on pumpkin soup this winter.
