pumpkin plantAbout a month ago, I planted this pumpkin plant in my raised garden bed. Afterwards, I told my trusted friend with a green thumb the news in which he burst into laughs. It turns out, pumpkin plants need a lot of space. It could easily take up my entire garden bed being as it needs roughly six feet of space to grow. Instead it was suggested to replant it on the hill in my yard. I took his advice and did so. I actually couldn’t believe just how difficult it would be to dig a small hole for the pumpkin. We have really rocky soil that has chunks of clay. I managed to get the little guy in the ground and he’s doing very well. A couple of flowers have formed and it’s getting bigger by the day.
