Tis the season

Well, its getting to be that time again! Pumpkin crop was doing well this year with all the rain we got in the spring...until the vine borers infested the patch and slowly began killing the plants.
I was able to kill a few of them but there are just too many of the pesky critters this year.
We managed to get a few good pumpkins, one of which I had to harvest already since the vine was infested right at the stem. Kind of frustrating but at least we will get 6 or 7 jacks out of the patch this year!
