Pumpkin progress

 Been a pretty good year for the pumpkin patch. Weather has been good and the vine borers have not caused too much damage yet.

The plants have pretty much grew out of control and I just let them. These are probably the biggest plants that I have ever grown, although the pumpkins themselves are not all that big, about basketball size and it looks like we have at least 16 so far!

Lots of carving this fall.


  1. Wow - what a splendid patch. Guess you did not get nailed by the Derecho that flatten many things across the midwest.

    1. Indeed we did get hit! We did luck out though since the patch is in back and surrounded by some bigger trees. It was quite a visual event, and if you like stormy weather, like I do, it was pretty exciting!
