I tried pumpkins a few years back and had maybe a dozen growing. Just at the point they started turning color some blasted creature started eating them. If there was a single bite taken the whole pumpkin withered. Didn’t have a single one make it through.What is the title of the book? I am glad they are waving fines.
I have always wanted to grow pumpkins. I have no idea why, but it has been a life-long failure. I have gotten a few blooms and one tiny pumpkin that died before it turned orange. It was no bigger than a tennis ball. I have flower beds around my house and a wildflower patch out towards the edge of our property that grows well enough. I also have been successful with a black raspberry bush. Pumpkins, though, are a mystery to me no matter how many books I read or directions I follow. I even had the soil tested.
I was unreasonably mad when I heard about the scam! That was the year that I went with my (mush disliked, now ex) mother-in-law from Ohio to Missouri to help a friend. Every cursed meal we ate was from McDonald's because she thought her chances of winning were better if she went to a bunch of McDonald's. We were gone for six days. Six days of nothing but McDonald's two to three times a day, and it was all a scam!
Yes, I ate many McD meals to get my monopoly tickets. But it sure is six hours of fascinating TV.
