A few months ago I smashed a pumpkin into a newly made hole in the garden. We had had a tree removed and the pit where the stump had been seemed a good location to build up a garden bed. I added some compost to the whole, dumped in the pumpkin, chopped it up to release the seeds and let it be. We saw one, strong plant rise from the pumpkin a month or so ago and today I noticed it was showing several flower buds. The plant seems awfully small to be thinking about flowering already, but who knows exactly what we will get, based on the haphazard method of its planting. We shall see.
