Pumpkin Patch Progress

It is a fun time to check the progress of the pumpkin patch.  They change quickly now!31 Bug in BlossomThe blossoms are providing food for the pollinators and the pollinators happily oblige by pollinating.31 PollinationI remember the general area I planted different species, gourds to the west and pumpkins to the east … but nothing more specific than that.  It makes it fun to see what is developing.

These are “tame” berries (thornless!!) and are usually larger than wild berries.31 BlackberriesShe shared berries with me in exchange for a piece of pie!Blackberry_pie

Deal!  Sealed with a fork.
