How long does it take to rid an acre of pumpkins of water hemp? I don’t know. I’m at seven hours so far. I’ll let you know the total when I’m done.
I am optimistic that when I get through it, the pumpkins will have grown enough to not need to weed them again. (I hope. I hope. I hope.) Honestly, if I could wave a magic wand and remove the water hemp, it would look really good! But I can’t do that, so I will keep pulling.
I actually see some little pumpkins on the plants that came up from the first two plantings.
The ones from the third planting are growing well.
Now I just need a bit of continued luck, and we’ll have plenty of pumpkins for the pumpkin patch this fall.
And a totally random thing: today is my 6th anniversary on WordPress. This is my 2,333rd post. Although, few of those I transferred from my previous blog.
I do hope you’ll come back and join me for Friday’s Hunt. The items for this week are at the top of my side bar.
