Who said pumpkins don't grow on trees?
Who said pumpkins don’t grow on trees. I just had to take photos this weekend of these silly pumpkins of mine which insist on growing up and over the plum trees rather than trail on the ground. I had to pick one this weekend as it was getting to heavy it was beginning to split at the stem.
I decided to harvest my butternut pumpkins too as they had stopped growing after an overnight cold snap we had a couple of weeks ago. Now they are hanging in wire baskets in the shade out of reach of frost, possums and rats!
