Vegie gardening question

Postby Ben » Tue Mar 13, 2012 4:35 am

Greetings all,

A quick question: When does one know when a pumpkin is ripe and ready for picking?
I have a large number on vines which have taken over my vegie garden.
Thanks

Ben
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.
