First Pumpkin of 2008, Musquee, and Tomato

Awww.... Look at that, my first pumpkin, hopefully. The flower is still open so I don't know if it's been fertilized or not yet, but there is a male flower open at the same time, so cross your fingers. This will be a cinderella pumpkin (Rouge Vif d' Etampes ). Hope there will be two, one for Jen and one for us for Halloween, anymore than that I will see how it tastes cooked, then freeze the rest for Thanksgiving and Christmas pies.
Musquee de Provence. I just love the leaves, so cool. This will be an eating pumpkin.
My biggest tomato. Hopefully we will get something. There were so many varieties I wanted to try, I hope they pull through. I think this one is doing the best because it was totally taken out of that yucky soil that the others are still in when I transplanted them. I should have taken all that soil off all of them. Oh well, next time I will know, if this happens again. By the way it was Edna's Best potting soil I used for transplanting in. I should have used Peaceful Valley's Organic Potting soil like last year when my plants did so well.

Love your blog! The pumpkin plant has really cool leaves. Maybe I'll try one of those in the future. Hope your tomato plant does well.
