Not everything can grow as perfect as I want.
Case and point, this years pumpkin patch. With all the rain this June we did not get it planted until July.
And then.... well I didn't weed it very much. To be honest, maybe I weeded it once. And this is how it looked this October.
It is overgrown to say the least. The plants came on late, I was hoping for pumpkins before a frost, but alas the patch was a bit of a failure this year.
I had to do a little searching to see if I could harvest anything.
There wasn't much, especially since the plants had been affected by powdery mildew after all the moisture.
And then there is the volunteer pumpkin patch. The patch that grew in our burn pile from last year's rotting pumpkin seeds.
I believe the harvest from this patch is much better than my purposely plant patch.
