Teenage Pumpkins

PumplinThey're about the size of small footballs, and there are two of them that I can see without digging through the surrounding pumpkin vines over much (the vines are surprisingly prickly and cause a weird, itchy reaction when they come in contact with my skin.)

Overall, the plants have been looking a little bedraggled--a combination of the heat and a funky looking little bug that I seem to have gotten rid of with my trusty bottle'o'neem--and I was a little afraid I was going to lose them for a few days.  However, this little guy and his sister are good signs.
