    Pumpkin plant not producing

    Hi 2Seventy5, I am certainly no expert but my best years for pumpkin harvests have been the "volunteers" that pop up in my garden when I top it up with compost, manure etc. This year with more rain than we usually get in Autumn I had some volunteers pop up and I allowed them to grow outside the...

    Thanks for the update Derek. Interesting to read of your temperature variations! I am, roughly, in the same area as Mark, so our climate zone is Sub-tropics. Dan

    New asparagus bed
