So I went out to check the status of my garden and my pumpkins have puzzled me... they are as ready as I can tell to be harvested. Nice orange, as big as they are going to get, stem is starting to brown. Perfect right? I don't think we have had a frost yet, as we have been almost 100 for the past week.
Well I figured I would harvest them tonight as the weather cooled.
Then to my surprise I noticed a vine that was quite happy where it was, had suddenly (and I am guessing in the past week while I was gone) grew another 6 feet and there is a decent size green pumpkin on it! Its about the same size as the rest but still green as can be!
Do I just harvest the rest and leave this little guy and the rest of the plant to see what it does? I was going to harvest and pull the vines and toss in the compost bin, but guessing that would be a bad idea!
