    Nice garden and setup. What type of tree with white flowers in the beginning of your video? Thank you for showing the hammock use of protecting the pumpkin. 🙂

    Do you get Gopher problems with your pumpkins??

    I already planted a pumpkin an it is in my ground, without taking into account we have Rabbits an gophers.. first time doing this. Was hoping on some advice?

    We are in Zone 9

    I planted small backyard gardens, Sacramento area, back in the late 70s, student years. Corn, greenbeans climbing the corn, onions, garlic. lots of tomatoes, cukes. and we trellised the cantaloupe on the back fence. Worked out well, used our daughter's cloth diapers as slings. Just a couple of city kids making it up as we went along (with some research). No gardens since '81. This year I did some pumpkins, Central Calif., Tulare Co., for the toddler grandkids, did fine, got 6 ranging from 4 to 30 lbs. I'll try again for the kids this year. They have a ball helping to water.

    Hi Kevin
    I am growing my pumpkin in a very large pot on the grass and on a large trellis up my backyard fence. I have only been successful in growing just one pumpkin on there this year and one last year. All the baby fruit keep dying. Is this because none of the trellis goes back down into the soil?

  • Robin Byrd

    I really appreciate you pumpkin videos …this is my first time growing pumpkins and I am so excited about them your videos have been very helpful

  • The Convergence

    good stuff bro. love your info…wish u could help me with mine over here in Cali. question…why do you only have netting on one side of the trellis? wouldn't it be better to have both sides netted so the Pumpkins can grow on both sides and take up even less room?…

    Would you have any suggestions for moving container pumpkin & butternut vines long distances? Found huge pumpkin & butternut plants, & want to put into container, to move over 1,000 mi.
    Thanx for vid
