My two Howden" pumpkin plants are both doing well, even with the extreme heat of the last few days. Both plants have set multiple vines which seem to be growing by leaps and bounds every day. The plants haven't set any pumpkins yet, but all of the vines have many immature fruit on them. It will just be a matter of time before the the female blossoms open and pollination commences. Until then, I have certainly been enjoying the male blooms on the "Howden" plants. They are some of the prettiest squash blossoms I have ever seen; large, star shaped, and bright yellow-orange.
