Photo Essay: The La Mirada Pumpkins!
The Martin Family of La Mirada shared these images of their recent mound preparation and seedling transplanting. I wish my mound looked as good as theirs! Note the placement of the mound in a corner. The walls will reflect heat and light on to their mound and growing area. I also think the walls may even keep the soil warmer by acting as heat sinks.
You can also see that they're also growing mammoth sunflowers. The Martins' garden theme for 2006 is "GIANT".
Thank you very much, and please keep your updates and pictures coming!
