Amputating a pumpkin 2
P3 is turning orange.
I'd like to think it was because my heroic horticultural efforts a couple of weeks ago, starting with deciding to fight the odds (no pumpkin death panels on my watch, Sarah Palin), setting up a pumpkin IV, creating an outdoor pumpkin ICU, etc, etc, but honestly, I think this miracle on the vine is simply nature is taking its course. An amazing series of days in the mid-80s to low 90s -- with a few more on the horizon -- hasn't hurt.
It's not the most attractive element in our backyard right now. But certainly the most interesting.
