I have been waiting all season for these little guys to turn orange and here they are peeking out at me! I've been on pins and needles hoping that they would survive the squash bugs so my little granddaughter, Taylor, would have a chance to pick one all by herself, right out of her garden.
Here's another one! So far three kids get pumpkins!
And yet a fourth! I think there are a couple more tucked under vines and leaves. They are all very small and mostly volunteers from my nephew's tossed out pumpkin that ended up in the mulch pile. I planted some seeds too so I'm not sure which plants these belong to.
I love fall- my very favorite season-Beautiful colors, cool nights to sit by the bonfire and roast marshmallows and drinking apple cider at fall festivals.
