Feral pumpkins

It’s a pumpkin takeover. Can you imagine about a month ago we transplanted two pumpkin vines that grew out of compost we had spread on the veggie garden? Now with the rain and hot weather they have just gone ballistically feral.

As you can see runners are going off in every direction: taking over the dichondra hillside; along the retaining wall; and trying to cascade over the rest of the veggie garden.

What is amazing there is so much growth for so little return – out of all that green we have three pumpkins at this point – but maybe more to come???
