Our Little Pumpkin Patch

Anyone else remember when our pumpkin patch looked like this? Well now it looks like THIS!

It's hard to tell how big it is from the picture, but it's about 10 feet from the fence! Not bad for no work on our part. But here's the best part :)

The orange pumpkin is bigger than my head! It's at least as big as the "mother" pumpkin that we bought at the store last fall... I had no idea we'd have full size, ripe pumpkins in July! I thought that happend in the fall. Thankfully, I found this site which tells how to store your summer pumpkins for Halloween.

This little guy is about the size of a grapefruit.

Here's one more that I found. So far, we have one orange pumpkin and 3 green ones. I think we'll probably have LOTS to share with our friends this fall!

How Exciting! I love pumpkins--when we buy a house, the first thing I am doing is going to prep a place in the yard for a garden...and I want pumpkins! You'll have to give me a few tips on how to grow them properly!
