I walked past the fence outside the garden last week and saw this joker hanging there. It's a pumpkin, and not a dwarf variety, either.
|I thought I could accommodate it with the help of some pantyhose, but they wouldn't stay put, despite the "control top" label.|
|The Sergeant came to the rescue, with a little monopod platform he whipped up in about five minutes. A couple of zipties ensure that it will stay put. Handy husband!|
We'll be sure to carve a smile on it when the time comes.
How funny! (and clever!)ReplyDelete
That monopod platform is adorable! I need one too, for a (for now) tiny hanging pumpkin. I've got tons of volunteer squash vines too, but not quite as robust as yours, which look positively other-worldly.ReplyDelete
The Sergeant planted the seedlings in a trench that he had filled with compost, so they are quite well-fed. He's got a green thumb, for sure.ReplyDelete
I wasn't very dedicated with my pantyhose hammock. You could probably make one work with a little more effort.
