Giant pumpkin female flower on the vine

More Female Flowers in the Tiny Pumpkin Patch

The giant pumpkin that has stopped growing is still hanging in there. It is not growing, but it isn’t rotting or breaking down anywhere near as fast as I thought it would have.

This fact leads me to believe that there is no hole into the pumpkin itself, and the problem is an internal one.

More Female Flowers

The plant has kicked back into life, and the side vines are showing a bunch of female flowers.

Which is great.

If they get pollinated and grow and everything is looking good I’m not sure if it will reach it’s full potential before our weigh off.

So I might keep growing it and see how big it can get. I’ll keep you informed on how all of that goes.

Sorting out the Garage

I got my hands on some more shelving for in the garage so have sorted out the eyesore that was the pile of stuff.

It’s looking good. There is still a lot of small bits and pieces to sort out and another trip to the dump will be in order.

Pumpkin Carnival Stuff

With less than 60 days to go until The Great Pumpkin Carnival the pressure is on to get things sorted.

Part of the committee went and looked at the new location we are having our event at for 2020.

It’s still at Hamilton Gardens, just in a different part.

We think it will work well for us. We just had to decide on the layout of the new location.

I’m going to have to make a lot of signs so people know where to go. That is the plan for this weekend.


I also re-branded / relaunched the email newsletter I’ve had for a while.
