Our ‘Big Max‘ pumpkin vine is enjoying the recent heat. The smaller varieties are leafing out and looking healthy too, but ‘ol Max steals the show. Max re-seeded from last summer, so had a bit of a head start. I’m definitely planting directly into the beds next year. I don’t think the indoor starter plants paid off in the end. So many of them wilted and died within 24 hours of transplanting.
Will you look at this happy pumpkin vine?!
