Last year I planted out some Queensland Blue pumpkins. I have been told they are lovely eating so I thought I would give them a go. Also my mother in law mentioned she liked them so I though I would grow a few plants and give some to her.
I ended up planting out 3 plants and nurtured them including hand pollinating But then it rained and rained and rained and the vine rotted away.
In the end I got one pumpkin. It better be bloody good.
Maybe in future I will just wait and see what pops up in the compost. They always seem to do the best.
Is this a familiar story at your place?
