Due to the heavy rains and extensive flooding in our area, it looks like the pumpkin crop of 2017 has bit the dust. Don't know if these plants can survive as I've never had experienced anything like this, but it does not look good. Looks like I'll be buying Jacks this fall!

So another growing season is under way and the pumpkins
are doing what they do best. A bit of a gamble this year since the seeds I saved from last season were a bit damp and when I took them out this spring they were a bit moldy. So it was off to the store to by some pre packed seeds. Never had good luck with them before so I am skeptical about this years crop.
So far so good- got some Connecticut field and Jack o lantern planted. At least they are flowering before the 4th and thats always a good sign.

Got back last week from a marathon fall travel adventure.
First off was Sleepy Hollow
Love the scarecrow that greets you downtown
(although it looks like a Pumpkinrot copy)
From the Pumpkin Blaze in Croton on the Hudson
Really amazing display
On to Salem..
"The Witch House" while on a lantern ghost tour
The whole town is just Halloween bliss
after 2000 miles of driving, it was then on to our
annual haunted camping trip
Then finally back home to decorate.
Got the Deadwood Cemetery set up yesterday
But, like clock work, the gale force winds are
whipping through today taking a toll on the props!

Received my shipment from Victor "The Undertaker" Ives at Halloween Hot Sauce yesterday and let me tell you, this is no novelty hot sauce....Ahem, Target.
(See Pumpkinrots blog for the rip off Target did on Victors stuff)
Hand made goodness, clever packing and the coolest Halloween graphics, as well as the personal details make this a must purchase! So well done.

After last years downpour and winds, our pumpkin creeper 'Lil RIP' bit the dust and fell apart with age and wear. After some consideration of offering him up to the Halloween bonfire Gods I decided that I would try and rebuild. So after much reinforcing and adding more branches and vines, he walks among us again better than the original. Glad of my decision to bring him back.
