Pumpkins on the Deck Again

I grew pumpkin plants on my deck again this year.

I grow them on the deck that faces south.  We have a short piece of fence between this higher deck and the paving stone patio that we (meaning Les) completed this year.

I planted 3 plants in a pot and plunked the pot in the top of a chiminea that no longer has the chimney.  They grew an abundance of female flowers to begin with.

And then mostly an abundance of male flowers.

But we did eventually get a couple of pumpkins.  Yay!

I love how the tendrils spread over the deck trying to take hold.

They aren’t big now but I’m hoping they will get a chance to get a little bigger before the hard frosts hit!
