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.
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!
