Summer Heirloom Garden

Over the past summer I started an heirloom garden in a couple of homemade raised garden beds.  I grew Cinderella’s Carriage (or Rouge vif d’Etampes) pumpkins and Moon and Stars watermelons.

My Cinderella Pumpkins

The pumpkins did pretty well!  Unfortunately, the watermelon vines only yielded two small watermelons (one of which I didn’t even know about!).  Of course, the watermelons may have had a chance to grow larger, but I accidentally broke the fruit off the vine.

Overall, I’m happy with the results.  I’ve never tried vegetable gardening before, but I think it turned out pretty well!
