The plants never hardly grew. It took forever for them to produce female flowers and the pumpkins that did grow, only grew very small. We got about 20 little pumpkins and I planted enough plants to get between 1000-1200 pumpkins:(
I know why this happened, but I was hoping it wouldn't. Because I decided after starting the process not to round up the surrounding area, the plants were competing for nutrients and water. Plus, this land hadn't been used for growing before and needed a lot more fertilizer. We had just gotten our pumpkin patch perfect for growing at our old place before we moved here last year.

I'm sad it didn't work out this year and I know a lot of people from around our area were sad as well. But, hopefully we'll be back next year!
