Garden Update: The pumpkins are taking over. July 6, 2010 By Amy 11 Comments This post may contain affiliate links. Read my disclosure policy here.The pumpkins are taking over. If these plants are any indication, I will be up to my ears in pumpkins this fall. My tomatoes have not quite recovered from their severe lack of water earlier this summer, but a few are trying to survive. My basil and sage are doing quite well. I haven’t killed either of them yet. And check out these beauties that were peaking out from the dirt this afternoon. How is your garden faring in this awful heat?
