I thought I had lost all hope of growing a giant pumpkin. The first giant pumpkin became dormant and then started to rot. I attributed it to the weird weather we have been having and started to loose hope that we would have giant pumpkins by October.
Then the vine started to show signs of life again. Something was growing. Another pumpkin!!! It is now the size of a basketball. With all of the rain that we have been getting, things are looking good for October.
