Back in the spring, Jerzie and I planted some sun flowers and pumpkins. I later planted them outside between the neighbors garage and my shed right in front of the telephone pole. It is really quite sunny in that area. My hollyhocks are planted in front of the pumpkins.
Last year we had lots of buds but no pumpkins. The buds have been plentiful this year also but I can't really get back in there to see if we have and pumpkins.
