I sometimes keep a small ruler with me in the garden to track the progress of a few things of interest.  Here’s how things are moving along this summer.

Jarrahdale Pumpkin in the second 3 Sisters bed.  This one settled on the ground.

This pumpkin climbed up  the bean support for a better view of the garden.  It’s getting to be a fat, happy baby.

The Variegated Pink Lemon is producing a few fruit and currently blooming.  The scent is great.

Variegated Lemon? Interesting. I know so little about citrus fruits.....they don't exactly grow up here. That's really cool that they're "stripe-y".

I have been waiting and waiting for a jarrahdale to set fruit, but nothing yet. That drought we had a couple weeks back really punished my pumpkin patch!

How exciting!

Your pumpkins looked wonderful! Ours were doing great, then within a couple of days the aphids destroyed the plants. Luckily, the pumpkins had already started to turn orange. They're small, but I'm sure we can carve a few Jack-O-Lanterns with them :)

(squash bugs killed our white pumpking plant weeks ago).
