A monster in our garden

As summer slips away into the cooler days of autumn, a monster has taken over our yard.  The wide angle camera lens doesn’t do any justice to the size of this plant.  Our yard is roughly 17m wide, the pumpkin would have to be at least 12m wide from the green fence to just under the clothes line.  But this plant cannot be fenced in by fences, oh no it has gone under the fence to deliver our neighbours pumpkins too! 

Last count of fruit 30 for us and 3 for the neighbours!

  1. wow! That’s a great plant! you certainly need plenty of room for curcubits! At least you’re getting plenty of fruit though. I have a similar sized winter squash growing and only two fruit so far…….
