How is the Garden?

Pumpkin Flower

We always get the question: how is the garden? It is becoming a regular series around here. As most gardeners will say I will check back with you on the plant. Plants may take time to grow but when they do things can change quickly. My father is looking forward to a few pumpkin pies and we hope to deliver. We have a few fall babies around here so pumpkin is one of the most popular and exciting plants we have. Initially we though that only one was planted. But, sure enough two have sprouted and it is going to be tight in the garden. We believe that the pumpkins will be a beautiful addition to the backyard.

Both pumpkin plants have flowers in bloom, which means fruit should follow soon. The flowers are gorgeous and we would love to pick them, but we do not want to interrupt the pollination process. We also got the Parsley herb plant outside in a container and it is doing very well. Initially when we harvested Dill we cut all the leaves. We have since learned how to properly harvest most herbs. It is important to cut only a third of the leaves and to leave the rest to continue to photosynthesize for the rest of the plant. She is now doing well and should last for a few years.
