These photos were taken a few days ago - anyone living in Canberra would know that because the sky isn't overcast in the photos! We have had days and days of overcast weather but only moderate rain. Still, any rain is good rain. So here's the pumpkin bed update.
And from the other end.
The poles / sticks that you see cluttering up many of my photos are used to help guide/ drag the watering hose around. I don't have a watering system set up in the garden bed and do all my watering by hand. I have two long hoses joined together, which makes for a bulky and sometimes recalcitrant heavy rubberized snake. I don't want it to damage the plants and so have set up poles on the corners of each bed. So every garden bed (all 8 of them) have 4 poles - one on each corner. From this angle you can see one pole on the corner of the pumpkin bed and one pole on the corner of bean bed (which I'm standing next to to take the photo).
And standing side on to the pumpkin bed and looking back across the 4 beds is this view of ...what..a wave of pumpkin vines about to swamp those who linger on the edge of the sea of plenty.
