I am trying to garden two plants at a time. This is my second year and I am not anymore successful than last. My questions relate to my two plants. First: My pumpkins turned orange this year, but only on one side. I have not found anywhere that says I have to turn my pumpkins as they grow. One side is nice and orange while the underside is softish and pale. Do I need to turn the pumpkins while growing?
My second question refers to tomatoes. I have several plants and lots of green tomatoes, but it seems as if I get lots of plant (I have a ton of huge-5 1/2' or taller plants), but am having trouble with the production of the fruit. Do I need to prune or trim the plants to get better fruit production?
