Our sad solitary pumpkin.  Won’t even be orange by the 31st.
I didn’t think I planted too late.
I was wrong,

Can you eat it in this stage? Kinda reminds me of my mother’s attempt at growing Dominican calabaza. The plant took over the yard we had at the time but every time one would start growing either the pest would get to it or just rot off. In the end all her hard work got was one squash which only survive cause she babied the hell out of it.

I’m not sure…it’s pretty green.  Although, the other night we had a spaghetti squash that wasn’t quite ripe and it tasted wonderful.
Your description of your mother’s experience mirrors mine exactly.  You can probably tell by the support we are giving this guy. 

Hmm that is true. It is a pumpkin so I would wait for it to at least start changing a bit of color before you eat it. If it is still bit green before the first frost I would cut it off with some stem still attached. I ask mother what you can do is keep it somewhere dark and not to cold or hot (kinda where you would keep your tators and onions) and it may finish ripening for you. If your plan is to cook it but that depends on the kind of pumpkin you are growing.
If that is the case than you did do like mum and planted too late. Well gardening is about experience so now you know what do next year. :-D Oops sorry for long reply there.

It’s all good.  I appreciate the input and hearing about others experiences because, like you said, that is what gardening is all about.

I was very lucky to have horticulture as an elective in my high school. If I hadn’t had that trade course, I probably wouldn’t have ended up being employed in a greenhouse after school, and thus really getting into gardening in my late teens.
If I had discovered this passion even earlier, I probably wouldn’t have ended up with a useless anthropology degree!
I can’t imagine my life without horticulture now.

Hey, anthropology isn’t worthless!!! But horticulture is definitely awesome :3

heh, tell that to my two years of unemployment.

It’s funny, to me, to see this romantacized in young people photography when this is reality for literally millions of americans. The people who deal with this for real would be wearing gloves and a not so tidy shirt.

RIP Rick Piltz — George W. Bush White House Climate Science Whistleblower.

From 1995-2005, he held senior positions in the Coordination Office of the U.S. Global Change Research Program.

In the spring of 2005, Rick resigned from his position to protest the Bush Administration’s political interference with climate change communication. His whistleblower documentation of politically motivated White House editing and censorship of climate science program reports intended for the public and Congress received front-page coverage in the New York Times and was widely reported in the media. 

Rick testified before both the House of Representatives and the Senate at hearings on political interference with federal climate scientists.

Basically, the Bush II administration was caught editing scientific reports from the EPA. Piltz informed the public, and a scandal broke out.

It should also be noted that George Bush Sr created the world’s first federal level climate change research office in 1990 with the Global Change Research Act of 1990. His son, George Bush Jr., tried to shut it down. See also.
