Finally, finally, finally! We turned our backs on the garden for a couple of days, and this morning found at least three Small Sugar Pumpkins, finally starting to grow! I think the hot weather and lack of rain really halted the production of female flowers. We got another half-inch of rain this week, so things are looking up.
The nights are getting much cooler – I’m going to start bringing my papayas inside for the evenings very soon. We may also need to think of a system for our potted eggplants to extend their growing season a bit. The first frost is still (hopefully) at least a month away, but given the late appearance of everything this year, I hope we’ll hold onto the sunshine just a bit longer!
