This season, I'm having a pumpkin vine on my raised bed in my eastern back yard.
I don't know which variety is it.
I couldn't remember when I sowed the seed.
As I recall, the vine had been there since the previous pumpkin planting (the last was Rocky).
I planted the vine vertically on the trellis in front of my kitchen.
This vine grow so thrives.
Look the shoots... go here and there...
I can find the shoots on my terrace garden.
Some shoots have reach the roof of my drying area.
I can find some female flower buds on the vine.
Look the wide leaf...
The vine is covering the broccoli and packcoy plot.
I pick some pumpkin leaves to reduce the 'vine load'.
Actually, I want to 'restore' the vine to the trellis.
But I also want to try 'hand pollinating'.
The vine position make me do pollinate easily.
I want to learn and practice a 'good agricultural practice'.
Be a good gardener....
