The only Pumpkin I could grow

 I grew pumpkins last year and I only got two.  I thought this year would be different.  New place and the weather is different.  But no.  I got this big vine to grow.  It stretches about twenty feet from the garden box.  
You can see that I have a few small pumpkins.  They are about the size of a grapefruit.  I have one the size of a basketball.  That is the only one.  I have had about twenty possible grapefruit size but they get to grapefruit size than stop growing and die.  I give up I can't grow pumpkins.  
Well we will be someplace different next fall maybe I can try again.

  1. Ah well, one pumpkin is better than none, right? Does the area get a lot of sun? We always had the lots of green stuff, not much fruiting issue at our old (wooded) house. Looking forward to gardening with sunlight next spring!
