|Here you can see the yellow fruit growing just outside the chain-link.|
|This vine now has an upper level growing in the opposite direction.|
|The new growth already includes a pair of tiny baby fruits.|
The other plants tend to have only one fruit apiece. Again, I'm pretty sure the location, specifically the quality of the soil in that location, is making all the difference. Those fruits are all older than the yellow bulging babies on the vines gone wild pictured above. Happily, the oldest are all a lovely dark green that is starting to turn orange! For a first-time pumpkin grower such as myself, this is very exciting. You know, 'cause pumpkins are generally supposed to be orange. So, orange must be a good sign, yes?
|One of my biggest babies. I know, not very impressive. Still, it's an achievement for me!|
|Loooook! A little orange pumpkin!|
|The healthiest fruit so far. Nice, consistent coloration. Just no orange ... yet.|
