093Welcome to my garden blog. I have some problems with my pumpkin patch. I’ve never grown pumpkins before and living in San Diego, I probably planted them the wrong time of year, but I did. Now (September) I have one glorious pumpkin, and all the rest have blooms–some are dead or dying after blooming, but I have no other little pumpkins even though I stare at them every day.

The one pumpkin is gorgeous, orange Cinderella type. The kids sprinkle glitter on it daily. But why did I get only one!
