My children made a tiny Jack o lantern this morning from a pumpkin from Sherri. She was kind enough to help babysit my children all day Monday and give them a pumpkin. My girl is now wanting me to save the seeds to make more pumpkins. I've washed the seeds and they are now drying. While gardening is not my thing, I think my girl loves it so maybe we will be planting a pumpkin patch next spring. I know she wants to plant flowers in two broken wheel barrels. She is my little gardener.
I still have 1 pumpkin from the place that we didn't carve. So I'll be trying them again next year. Before when growing them or watermelon, as soon as the got about the size of a small basketball my dog would tear them off the vine and playing with them. Now that he's older I think he'll probably leave them be??
