I'm still hurt but I'm doing much better. It doesn't hurt as much but I still need to be in bed mostly or sitting down. Hard when I see so much stuff that needs to be done and things becoming a mess without me. It's amazing how things can fall apart in just a few days if you don't tend to it every day. Mainly chickens making a mess of my patio and weeds popping up in the pumpkin patch. Sigh.

We had a good work week this week though. If we have time Chris said he'd take me to the pumpkin patch tonight. I hope so. I can't wait! I'd really love to go today and pick out some pumpkins. I put up a video on youtube yesterday. The link is in my sidebar so check it out. It's a depressing one. One of the baby pumpkins died and the others don't seem to be growing. The melon worms are devastating my leaves and spraying isn't working. It's very disapointing and it's clear now that I will not have my very own pumpkin for Halloween. I'll have to rely on the ones I buy. But despite that this is still the best I've ever done with pumpkins and well Thanksgiving is still on its way in November. So let's hope for some Thanksgiving pumpkins. Not as fun as Halloween pumpkins but here's hoping. But I am very happy that gourds do grow well down here at least. I just wish they were as popular as pumpkins. Most people don't even know what they are.

So I've mostly been gaming. I am having a lot of fun with it. I've also been chatting with my friends on youtube. I think I spend about as much time there as I do here. Lots of fun. I wish more of them would come here. That would be great. I make my videos mostly for my journal anyway.

I'm glad you're doing better but that's awful about the pumpkin :( I suppose there's always next year but it's still disappointing when you were so excited about it and then it fails.
That's cool. I made a few friends on YouTube as well and through my videos, like with you, people ask my advice.

Thanks. Though I did too much today. That always happens when I start to feel better. Well there's still time in the year, but not enough time for Halloween. But yes I am looking forward to starting next year. Yeah, I didn't have my hopes too high but it kind of tricked me since it looked like it was going so well. I am disapointed.
I love youtube. That's great you get people asking for help too.

I watched your video yesterday, and that sucks about your pumpkins.

Yeah, it was rather disapointing.

Oh no! That sucks that you lost your pumpkin. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you for a Thanksgiving pumpkin.

Also, I'm glad your back is feeling a little better now.

Thanks. I'm considering replanting some of the vines that are looking bad. No pulling them but just adding new seeds perhaps. Yeah now the goal is a Thanksgiving pumpkin.

Thanks. I still need to take it slow. It's better but I'm not recovered yet.

D'Oh, I'm sorry that you still don't feel that fine and that you lost your pumpkin. :( I hope that you will be okay pretty soon again.

We did not plant some pumkins this year but I really need to do it in my Mum's garden next year, there is enough space for them to grow how and where ever they want to. Then we have more pumpkins for decoration also again.

Thanks. I'm hoping another day or two and I should be ok.

I hope you will. I'd love to see pictures if you grow some pumpkin plants next year.

I'm sorry to hear about your pumpkins. I still don't know why you can't grow them in your summer. Is it too hot and humid? Here we can grow them all over the country.

Sorry your back is taking so long to heal, but it sounds like it is slowly mending. That will be nice of you get to Pumpkin Patch.

You can't really grow pumpkins in Florida. Yes it's too hot and humid and then there's all the powdery mildew. And the melon worms and stink bugs are really bad. Mostly the melon worms.

Yeah slowly's the key word. I did get out to the patch yesterday. I will post pics. Chris got me a giant pumpkin!
