Update: Pumpkins / Squash

It turns out the winner of the two winter squashes I planted is by far the golden Hubbard. We've had 5 huge squashes so far, I've given away some and there are two more on the way, one already the size of a water melon.

The Seminole pumpkin started off with a bang, but sadly stopped producing altogether, its growing all over the place and not a single pumpkin in sight.

Both squashes are being plagued by green caterpillars of some moth that devour the entire leaf, the part not yet devoured is rolled and spun together with silk, when you touch or shake the leaf, the caterpillar simply lets go and falls to the ground.
