Yahooooo! I’ve finally found a little baby pumpkin growing! I honestly have been a little panicky thinking I wasn’t going to get any pumpkins. My plants are growing like weeds and I’ve seen many blossoms but no pumpkins. I went on a “pinterest” search regarding pumpkin growing – DID YOU KNOW that pumpkin plants have both male and female blossoms?? I didn’t! I knew the bees needed to come around to pollinate them but seriously – what exactly does THAT mean? So, the male blossoms shoot off the plant on a long stem and they are huge. It’s the female blossom that produces the pumpkins. The female blossoms stay closer to the vines (not on a stem) and the “bees” buzz around collecting pollen from the male blossoms and then they buzz over to the female blossoms and ta-dahhhh – I have baby pumpkins! Who knew?
