Just check out these sunflowers!
We now have two seed heads on the originally planted giant varieties, opening up.
The first one to start opening is getting big enough, the stalk is starting to droop quite a bit – which means short little me can see it better! 😀
Nice to see the pollinators busy at work on the second one to start opening!
Speaking of pollinators, they are just loving our squash bed right now. So many new flowers. Including in the pumpkins.
Look out big this pumpkin is getting!
This pumpkin mound has two plants growing in it, lots of flowers but, so far, there is just this one pumpkin that seems to be growing. There is another on the second plant, but it doesn’t seem to be getting bigger.
This one is on the plant in the mound I’d planted 5 seeds in, and it took so long to come up, I thought none would germinate. Now, not only is the plant just big as the ones that sprouted earlier, but it has a pumpkin that’s almost as big as the other one!
I still don’t thing there is enough of a growing season left for the pumpkins to fully develop and ripen, but I’m still enjoying how they are doing now.
