My son wanted to grow pumpkins this year. I told him that summers probably aren't long enough here. He was startled when I showed him the seed - it looked just like a pumpkin seed.
Every day I run to the back yard to see if we've achieved orange. Not yet.
Secret gardens, secret lakes
I planted beets in tall, thin containers, without considering how much depth they'd need for roots. The first few I pulled had curled roots, spiraling at the bottom of the pot. This is the first to bolt.
