This is for the first time I plant small pumpkin type on the pot. 
I planted 'Eastern Rise'.
Planting pumpkin in a very little garden is challenging me.
I planted the orange pumpkin on July 24.
The  first experience, I wish I will get good result.

The pumpkin's pot  moved to the new place on September 3. Maybe I was late to move it. It leaves were already pruned.  And the trellis was  ready above.  So... the pumpkin was preparing to grow vertically. I will do the best for this challenge.


  1. You are growing pumpkins?? Great! I like sweet pumpkins.

  2. Yes Tomoko, this is small and sweet pumpkin variety. I had ever planted local variety of pumpkin like as halloween pumpkin. The fruits were so big about 5-10 kg. But that variety need wide space. You know that in Indonesia land price is so expensive, and I just have a small piece of land. So I have to plant small variety of pumpkin, that can grow in a small space on my home garden. Thank you for visiting.

  3. An interesting post Endah, thanks for visiting my blog.

  4. Howdy Endah....you inspire me, I am so amazed how you can get things to grow in pots so well. I have a watermelons planted in a pot. And I have a red bell pepper plant growing in a pot. They will remain indoors, for the winter. I will let you know how they do.

    1. I'm glad you back again. Welcome! Yes... plant in a pot is best for me cause I just have a small space for gardening. Using pot or container, we cant grow vertically, so more efficient on land use. Thank you for coming. Have a nice day
