This morning I headed out to the garden to photograph the pumpkins so I could record their growth. As I was inspecting them I noticed one of our Cinderella pumpkins was starting to get a little hole in it. So I picked it.
There is still a wee bit of green on the pumpkin, but hopefully it will orange up here in a few days and ripen enough so I can process the pumpkin meat to enjoy later this winter.
While I was out there I also picked a what I thought was a Queensland Blue and a Jarrahdale pumpkin. But as I was bringing the pumpkins to the porch I noticed small splashes of orange on the underside of the Queensland blue pumpkin.
I think I messed up. I think I accidently picked a French Musquée de Provence instead. Crap! It appears I jumped the gun too early. Dang. Well, at least I have 3 more of these growing in the garden. Now I know to just wait.
Do you think it will ripen, or am I stuck with a green pumpkin?
