First Pumpkin

This little baseball size pumpkin is the first in this bed. I started really late this year growing from seed and transplanting to the beds. The bees have been fewer and fewer so I hand pollinated the upper pumpkin bed. Great video with a dad and daughter to show how to hand pollinate your pumpkins can be found here.
