The giant pumpkin fail of 2018

We had high hopes of growing another giant pumpkin this year, but sadly, our pumpkin failed. It was thriving, but a few sudden rain storms overwhelmed it with too much water. As you can see, it split.

I’ve never seen it happen before, but it’s somewhat common. We only had one vine, and as of right now no other pumpkins are growing on it. It’s a bit late in the season, so I doubt we will get a single pumpkin this year.

Next year I want to go the other direction and try growing mini-pumpkins instead!
