Pumpkins

The garden has been pretty sad this year. It got pelted with hail more than once, drowned in rain during two wet spells, and has been experiencing temperatures over 90 degrees for nearly 3 weeks.



The plum tomatos are protesting, first with blossom-end rot because of the inconsistent moisture, now with refusing to put on more blossoms.



The onions have been beaten down and are hiding out.



The grapes we had were knocked off the vine by the hail, so it looks like we'll have to skip this year.



BUT -- the pumpkins, though beaten with the same hail, and subjected to the same moisture and heat, are still interested in producing in the garden.



Come on Fall! We're going to have pumpkins!
