The Pumpkin Patch


We finally had our first freeze two weeks ago. That was the end of the growing season. As much as I hate to admit it, I am looking forward to a break from everything since I worked so hard all summer. Even with the freeze, my allergies have been so bad I have barely been outdoors in three weeks. I miss my animals, and all my outdoors stuff.

Yesterday, I took a quick walk through the garden just to start thinking about clean up (when the allergies allow), I was stunned to find a few veggies that had somehow survived the frost.


But, all veggies aside... my biggest pride and joy out of the garden this year was my amazing pumpkin patch!
We don't know for sure how much these big ones weigh, but rough guess of 100 lbs!

The pumpkins produced beyond what I ever expected, so I even sold some! My very first pumpkin customer's were more than happy to pose for a pic. Aren't they just the cutest???

Lil' Miss K, was just lovin' posing with her pumpkins and squash!

Happy Halloween All!
