Halloween Pumpkins

Last year I attempted to grow some pumpkins for carving at Halloween. All went well until next door’s bastard cat decided to sleep in the trough and wrecked the plants. Undaunted I thought I’d have another go and on Monday I discovered one of the plants had flowered.

  1. My parents had a pumpkin farm. Every fall we’d open it up to the public and people could wander through the pumpkin patch and pick their own, take hayrides, drink cider, etc.. No one realizes how much work goes into growing pumpkins. I hope you get some beauties! Looks like you’re off to a good start.
