A hammock for my pumpkin

These are lazy days compared to what has been over the last few months. The sun beats down, I water, I help climbers to find the right direction, I water, I pick some food...lazy days. None of that back breaking (but lovely) work of Spring anymore.

The first pumpkins I planted were heirloom seeds from www.livingseeds.co.za called Austrian Oil Pumpkin. They are doing well and escaping the confines of the veggie garden by climbing into neighbouring trees.

The largest pumpkin is hanging on the fence and the stem was being cut by the one slat...so seeing I am having lazy days, I figured that my pumpkin could have a hammock to take the pressure of the stem....doesn't it look sweet?
