Weekend reads: Fall gardening tips
My spring was so full of Little League baseball that I never got a chance to plant my garden. I prepared it, but never planted. The starters that I bought went to my neighbor who planted them. One weekend when we returned home from the shore, another neighbor had taken some pumpkin plants that had started in his compost pile and planted them in my big empty garden. I was so pleased. Unfortunately, the plants while growing large and producing many male flowers, never produced on single pumpkin. I’m wondering if the seeds that started these particular plants were GMO seeds that were engineered to not produce fruit. I have no proof, but I’m curious.
