The pumpkin patch seems to be doing ok. I never did thin out the plants; so, I hope they all continue to grow. Those sunflowers have developed flowers and the plants are at least 7 feet tall now.
A week ago I found one of the sunflower heads on the ground. I couldn't tell if it had broken off or if some birds had pecked at the stem to topple it to the ground. No seeds had developed yet but it looked like something had been eating the tender parts of the flower.
