It started more than a decade ago, but I don’t know exactly when. I do know that pumpkin vines fill the background of many back-to-school photos taken when my kids were still the age we took those. In some, the vines totally cover the pavement in the backyard. Other years there is only a straggly stem in the frame. One year there were none at all.
