Musquee de Provence

Seeking a “Cinderella” type pumpkin I bought some unique sounding seeds that promised to grow in to a squash that looks kinda like a “Cinderella” pumpkin. These were Musquee de Provence seeds. 

I am excited for them. I have several little, tiny, itty-bitty pumpkins on the vines already. I didn’t however read specifically about this type of squash before buying, planting and growing them, so I looked them up just now. 

Here’s what I found and I’m even more excited!

I wrote the following last year. I’ve written down my memories of this day over the years. I can’t write it again. Not this year.

I wasn’t going to do it. I wasn’t going to write this and relive the day, the week, the month….the years since. But I read Hotlead’s post and figured, ok, sure…let’s try.

On September 10, 2001 my girlfriend at the time, Ashley, and I were working for Pallotta Teamworks and had either…

My reclaimed wooden crate grown pumpkins are doing well. Pumpkins like high nitrogen fertilizer and lots of water, at least this is what I have read, so I have been fertilizing with blood meal and watering 1-2x a week with a bucket of water collected from our showers as the water heats up, and once or twice a week with the hose. This drought is no joke.
