Yes, it’s a question mark. 4 weeks ago, i wrote excitedly about how well the pumpkins were doing. Then last week i realised that they had stopped growing and the plants were dying. So i don’t think there will be a pumpkin harvest. You can see for yourself in these rather sad pictures:
So the pumpkin plants did make it through and have fruit now! Thank God! i have also harvested the pears – they were yummy. But we lost more than half to wind, birds and insects. Still it was much better harvest than last year! Here are some photos for you to enjoy 😉
i just realised that i have not shown off my garden in a couple of months so here’s what’s been happening in my garden.
i also planted crocus this year but they only lasted a short time and i didn’t get a good picture. The Maybell which we (Tobias and i) planted last year did come back but we have no flowers. i think the campanula was crowding them. i also tried a variety of herbs and sunflowers, from seed packets which the Migros gave out last year for one their kids collection things. But none survived, except for a very small dill plant and a basil plant, which is ever so tiny still. Sad but maybe i will try again next year.
i must confess that i never thought i would be the gardening type but it has brought many a smile to my face to see these lovely plants and flowers growing in my garden, knowing that i put down those seeds/seedlings. 😉
Wishing you a lovely summer! And i hope you can get out and enjoy the beautiful nature whenever possible.
