The Thin Green Vine

I have pumpkin vines!

3 to be exact.  Although one is by far the longest at about 4 feet.  The others two.. well I didn’t train them correctly and they will end up fighting for space.  I’ll have to check on the progress of the grudge match every day.

Got some pumpkin vines this year.

Lets hope that the temperatures and moisture stay within acceptable ranges this year.  Texas is going through a severe drought.  While I have a soaker hose installed along the vines, there’s not much you can do if temperatures top the 100 mark day after day.  Luckily we’ve had a freakish cycle of rain the past 3 days, so hopefully the vines are well established for the rest of the season.

An hopefully the male flowers and female flowers have a menage-a-trois with a bee and give me some pumpkins this year!!
