Checking-Up on the Pumpkin Patch

My pumpkin patch is looking great this season!

Every June, my gardeners and I plant lots and lots of pumpkin seeds - many from our favorite seed companies, and some from interesting and tasty fruits I’ve enjoyed over the years. Pumpkins grow on vines, which means they take up a lot of space. I always plant my pumpkin patch in a roomy bed that can accommodate a large crop of big, colorful specimens. As you know, this year, I decided the patch would be planted down by the vegetable gardens.

Most varieties take between 90 and to 120 days to grow. We still have a few weeks to wait, but everything is growing so nicely, I wanted to share a few photos with you - enjoy.
