Yes, it is sad but true. Over the weekend I had to part with several of my watermelon and pumpkin plants. I had no idea they would all sprout or that they got so large. I have downsized to about six of each, and I may still have to find homes for a few more. I didn't just toss the others aside in the trash, I posted an ad on craigslist.org and sent them all to new homes. Now the garden is flourishing with life and not being completely taken over with vines and leaves.
