Default Pumpkins

First i don't know if butternuts ripen off the vine, but some Bohemiens I
grew a few years back changed colour twice after the death of the plant.
I put in some Golden Nuggets and they threw Female flowers first on one
bush, missed pollenating the first one but hop the male flowers on the 2nd
one get their As into gear as there is another F flower just about ready.

I cut them off the vine too early I think.
