Bountiful Harvest

Jack-o-lanterns galore! We had so much fun this year growing our own pumpkins. Our pumpkin plants grew so big they almost went from one end of our yard to the other (over 150 feet long). We ended up with 18 regular pumpkins and 16 jack-be-little pumpkins. It was so fun to go out everyday and see how much the vine had grown. For a few weeks in July it would grow a foot or more a day. It grew so fast that while we were gone to Washington for 3 weeks it grew right over the top of everything else we had planted in the garden.  We were very lucky to have such a bountiful harvest our first time around that we can hardly wait for next year.

The girls will be very busy the next few weeks carving and decorating.
