I planted some pumpkin seeds back in the early summer, and the vines have spread over about 1/4 of my Dad's back yard, but until now there were no pumpkins? Lots of great flowers - bright yellow and about 6" across, but no pumpkins. I was hoping to grow Maya's jack-o-lantern! Yesterday I checked again, and found one - see above. Found another one today - see below. It is kind of late in the season, so I suspect these guys may not make it to the big orange stage? From the shape of the one above, maybe it got cross pollinated with a neighborhood gourd?
