WOW! That thing has grown so much since the last photo! Hows the apple tree fairing?
That's amazing. I thought they were orange from the start.
Thanks!The apple tree is still alive, but some of its leaves are dead. D thinks it's dying but if that's true, it's taking a very long time to do so. It just might make it. :]DF, the FLOWERS are orange. There are boy flowers and girl flowers. The girl flowers have a little bulb at the bottom and when the boy parts are put into the flower by bees, a pumpkin grows in the girl flower. Then the flower falls off the end of the pumpkin. The little belly button on the bottom of the pumpkin used to be a flower.I learned all this last year, too. All pumpkins used to be girl flowers.
It looks really good. Better than my garden is doing at the moment.
