Last week we had the first good rain in three years, here in Northern California. Now the weather has turned quite cold. I put an additional blanket on my bed last night.
My pumpkin plant experiment was a failure. The plants are still alive, and still producing yellow flowers every day, but I suspect the cold will kill them soon. The big plant produced three small pumpkins, all of which died soon after flowering. Not sure why. I'll try a bigger planting in May.
