Pumpkin stuff mostly  
Well I've been working hard on making my pumpkin patch. It's easier to show you than to tell you.

I love that Zucca! I'm thrilled with it.

Love that guitar intro!

I've bought Horned Melons and they've been green when I bought them, but have ripened up afterwards. So, you could probably harvest them and ripen inside of you want to avoid pests eating them. But they'd probably taste better if you left them on the vine. I think I've only eaten them fairly ripe (yellow, not orange).

Hint: Holes are easier to make with a mattock! They should start growing out towards the sunlight, like you said :)

I could hear your chooks whinging about not being able to get in, too :)

No ideas on what to do with the raised beds, I'm afraid...except maybe plant cabbages, cauliflowers, broccoli, leeks, snow peas etc...and potatoes!

Me too. That's why I chose it.
I think I will harvest some still green and lave others on the vine and see what happens.

It'd be amazed how thick and hard our grass is. I put the shovel in and stood on it and nothing happened.

Yeah the chickens are always whinning about something.

It's all going to be for pumpkins, I'm just not sure about the spacing yet.
