It’s nail-biting time. The pumpkins are in the planter boxes, watered and tucked in under a blanket of rich garden mix. I erected what we affectionately refer to as Fort Knox for Squirrels, a chicken wire enclosure to keep squirrels (and rats) from noshing on the tender green shoots. We’ve learned this lesson the hard way. It’s disheartening to see your starter crop reduced to wilted, broken stems.
So..now we wait and hope for the best.
Special thanks to Laura for the custom tie-dyed apron. I love it!
