Only one lone sunflower is standing; but the pumpkin plants are continuing to spread out. I am wondering about the leaves on some of the plants, they are more yellow than green. It is the middle plants that have the yellow leaves. Maybe, I should have thinned out those plants.
It seems odd to me that there were, and still are, many blossoms; but only 3 small pumpkins are beginning to swell from the base of a few blossoms. Most of the blossoms just seem to dry up and fall off. I wonder how pumpkin pollination works. Are some of the blossoms male and some female; so that once the male blossoms are used up… they wither and blow away?
I googled "pumpkin plant pollination" and my guess was right about male and female flowers. Now, I wonder if those little green bulbs will make it. It's true, "the more you know… the more there is to worry about."
