Pumpkins popping up

If you've stopped by recently you will notice there are new changes every day.  I can't believe how fast some of these things grow.  Today it was pumpkins and more squash popping up, and some watermelon too I think.  Anyone know why the squash aren't so happy with us?  I'm thinking it might be watering from above, and now there are some soaker hoses around them so hopefully they will like that more.  At least, until I have a chance to figure out what else they may be needing.  Things are growing so well that there is now a new task to add to the contributions list:  thinning out the plants.  This will be particularly important for the beets, carrots, squash (on the southeast corner) and pumpkins as there are a whole bunch popping up in the same area and there will never be space for them all to grow there.  This seems like one of the harder jobs, because I am so excited to see the new plants that I don't want to pull any of them out, even if I know that it is in the best interest for the garden.  So, if you have less empathy for the plants please come on over and pull some out.  As always, if you have questions, suggestions, concerns or just want to say hi send an e-mail. I'd be happy to set up a time to meet people at the garden this weekend if you're looking for company to work in it.  Take care and enjoy the sun, looks like summer is finally here.
