Pumpkin plans

I have pumpkin plans. The orange square in the left hand top corner of my updated garden plan is for pumpkins, possibly with rhubarb as well. I've been reading around to see if I have to dig up the whole space or just enough to plant each seed and then the pumpkins can wander over lawn. It seems they can wander over lawn which is good, because even an obsessive like me can only dig so much. After I've harvested the pumpkins in Autumn, then I'll plant the area in blueberries. Yum yum yum. Hope I'm still sufficiently obsessed to make it all happen then.
The light green blotches are for beans. We are going to spread chicken wire across the fence.

I don't know if I find your writing more amusing or your computer generated plans.

word of warning: that orange patch will SPREAD and take over the whole back yard....there'll be no lawn left;-)
may you have many pumpkin soups and roast dinners

PS you can always give your pumpkins frequent haricuts to keep them in check!
