Last week, Marv asked me if I had visited the garden plot way over at the far end of the field. I had not, so he told us to be sure to go visit it before we left for the day.
To our surprise the plot is full of BIG ORANGE pumpkins. I did not have my camera or phone with me, so I had to wait to take photos.
We have received rain, rain and more rain this week.
The first opportunity I had to get out to the gardens was on Wednesday. I hurried over to the pumpkin plot to take photos. At first I did not notice anything was wrong.
Look close at this photo, you will see something is not right.
Big, beautiful, orange pumpkins.
Take a peek at the one far out, it is lighter orange.
Something got hungry and ate this big, beautiful orange pumpkin.
Tracks left behind...we are on the case...case solved, deer!
If you missed my post about the Deer Spray check out the following post
Remember to continue to spray your squash, pumpkins and any other produce that needs time to harvest, the deer will continue to visit your garden all year long.
My heart ached for this gardener. I sure do hope they are able to save this big pumpkin.
I will be taking next week off from blogging.
I am wishing you all a wonderful week.
Thank you for all the kind comments and support.
