pollinating pumpkins

M pollinated our first pumpkin flower this morning! It is one of the Cinderella pumpkins. Of course, the timing is all wrong because I want them for Halloween, but exciting nevertheless. They say the best way to store pumpkins is in cool, low humidity conditions. If a place with such conditions existed in Gifu in the summer, that is where I would like to be stored as well! Both the pumpkins and I are out of luck.

The annuals are starting to spread out and cover the fading bulb foliage...
We have 3 baby eggplants.
