Enjoy the crop! I love pumpkin and squash blooms!

Bernie said...

Alas, these seem to all be the Male Flowers!! The female flowers, have what will become the fruit (Pumpkin) which is a small round/elongated fruit just below the base of the flower. To almost guarantee a pumpkin, grab a small brush, brush the anthers where the pollen is on these flowers, then find the femail, and brush the stamen... There should be 4-5 anthers whilst only a single stamen!!!

Good luck!!

Mines up as well at AussiePomm - Blast from the past!!!!

Have a great day!!

Judy Haughton-James said...

Oh yes Joyce! Happy WW!

Yes autena, this is my backyard. We live on a farm and in the past we have had a lot of pumpkins which were sold. Have a good day.

kristi said...

Hey Judy,

Ah, there is nothing like a good pumpkin patch! Is this picture current? Our growing seasons couldn't be any different! You wouldn't see a pumpkin here for another six months at least. Thanks for hosting Judy! Have a great week.

Paula Miller said...

We attempted growing pumpkins one year and one perfect little pumpkin grew, and then an animal stole it :(

Happy WW :)

Judy Haughton-James said...

Thanks Kristi! Yes, this is a current picture. Happy WW!

Judy Haughton-James said...

Oh yes Paula, animals sometimes steal them. Goats are our problem here! Have a good Wednesday.

Lisa said...

I can't wait to start our spring planting! :-) Thanks so much for hosting, Judy!

TaMara Sloan said...

I love those yellow flowers. I tried to grow some pumpkins last summer/fall. We had the beautiful flowers, but some critters ate the pumpkins.

Thanks for linking up over at Tales of a Pee Dee Mama

Judy Haughton-James said...

The critters are really a problem TaMara! Take care and have a good day.

Judy Haughton-James said...

Good luck with your spring planting Lisa! Happy WW!

Kristin Aquariann said...

Pretty! Except now you have me daydreaming of pumpkin pie and autumn, and it's not even spring in Delaware yet.
