This is what the pumpkin looked like on August 13th. A beautiful deep dark green and the size and shape of a small squat or oblate cantaloupe.
August 20 2008
Only 1 week later and Pumpkin is now the size of a large cantaloupe , still squat in shape but now starting to come into color.
I am absolutely certain that the color is even more pronounced and orange today. I would have taken another picture to show the difference, but as soon as I was on my way out, the sky opened up for a nice rain shower. I am not complaining though, no way, because even though some parts of my area are complaining of too much rain, I have not been getting rain regularly....no where near enough for my garden, so I am a happy gardener today :)!
