Do you remember these two little pumpkin possibilities from June 24?
Guess what they look like now. Pretty awesome, eh?
As Vanilla pointed out, that fence isn't going to do the job very much longer. I'm working on that. We have plenty of fencing for a nice space, adequate for the pumpkins, and maybe a friend or two next year. The problem is, it's buried in some tall grass. Not an easy job to recover. I have one short piece and one long piece pulled out. One more of each to go to complete the rectangle.
I'm terrible about getting things started and not finishing them, but this needs to happen really soon. I have a very full week of work, so it will be a challenge, for sure, and the most difficult piece is yet to be recovered.
So far the only threat has been a robin that landed inside the small circle of fencing and was pecking at the baby leaves. I ran out and chased it away. Sheesh. Am I going to have to buy bird netting for the top, too?
