Pumpkin saga continues

Pumpkin harvest time has arrived. We have already picked some 15 pumpkins all about the size of the ones in the photos (3-4 kilos). Friends, family and a local cafe have benefited from the bounty. And there are still about another 15 getting close to harvesting.

As you can see from the second photo the vines over at the shed have now gone ballistic; and are now cascading down the hill through our mini coffee plantation. Of course I draw a line when they try to use the coffee bushes as a trellis after all coffee is more important in our household than pumpkins. By the way the coffee bushes have been in about 18 months and we will get a small crop this year.
