cinderella pumpkinNow that the 100 degree days have gone, the pumpkins finally decided to start growing. Just in time for the plants to die. Sigh.

I have had a garden for many years, yet I still have annual challenges. This Cinderella pumpkin won’t be turned into a coach anytime soon. It wouldn’t even make a very big pie!

Do you have any garden fails this year?
