I recently planted about 20 pumpkins in the front yard in an attempt to grow a pumpkin jungle to cover the weeds. The bugs have chomped most of them though, leaving blank holes in the mulch like that above. There are probably about 6 left! Oh well, someone got fed!
We are not having much luck with food gardening this year, with such a huge lack of rainfall this spring. We are growing what we can, but the time and expense of water to keep everything alive is a big deterrent.
Due to work and other time commitments, we decided to take a break from blogging, but keep what we had achieved in previous years online, to inspire others living a frugal low-income life.
