How Does Your Garden Grow?

There is an orange pumpkin in there!

A small pumpkin!

Sadly the leaves of my pumpkin plant have been turning white and my mom said it is because they are not getting enough oxygen. I admit the vines are smashed in the small space they have :( So I tried to thin it out and cut some back but now all the flowers are starting to look poorly so I am not sure what is going on. I am so sad! I could have had at least 15 more pumpkins with all the flowers but now it seems like I will only have 2 pumpkins. Sigh. We'll see. 

Here is another shot. Not all the leaves have the white stuff on them but so many do. Makes me sad. If anyone out there knows what I can do about fixing this I'd be glad to give it a try!

As for the other plants in my garden, the cantaloupe is hanging in there and I see one growing! One is better than none I guess. I do see 1 more cucumber coming. Hopefully I can pick it before it gets too big like the other one did.

I have no idea what you should do. I end up killing all my plants. I've actually been meaning to post about it!

Whoops! I'm sorry! I feel like I had a better garden in AZ despite the heat than I do here in UT. I've pretty much killed my lambs ear somehow which is really sad because it took forever to find a nursery that had it!
