I had a pumpkin plant grow out of my compost pile. It started in April some time. we had one potential frost after it came up, at that point I wasn't sure what type of squashy thing it was, so I covered it bc I wanted to see it grow. Why not, right? Well, it is a pumpkin and there are currently 8 pumpkins on it. !!!!!!!!!! This is by far the most productive plant in my garden. the rest of my garden is just not really good. I really need a cow or something to bring in nutrients LOL. just never enough money to get poop delivered I got some compost, but not enough.
So, the current count on this one plant is 8 pumpkins thus far. I'm sure there may be more right? pumpkin season is still young! will the plant wear itself out by october?
