Peek-a-Boo, I see you!

Nestled amongst all the leaves of both the fava bean plant and hokkaido pumpkin plant, we noticed two reassuring sights.

Above, in the middle of the picture, notice the fava bean pod in formation. This was the first time we grew the fava beans, so we were unsure of what to expect and whether the flowers were pollinated.

Below, you see the beginning of the female flower for the hokkaido plant. In about a fortnight, this little flower will be pollinated, and the hokkaido pumpkin will start forming. We had a lot of hokkaido pumpkins last season, so it will be interesting to see how growing in the summer heat of Riyadh impacts the yield.
