The pumpkin plant is growing quite nicely by the dwarf apple tree D planted this spring. D is upset that his tree isn't doing as well. He says that it's all due to the pumpkin plant being so close by, but in truth the leaves turned black like that before we planted the pumpkin there. Some nice orange-y yellow flowers are beginning to form beneath the leaves. We've soaked the plant and tree with water today, so they should both be happy. The seeds are from last year's pumpkin.
