Garden Gems


These little guys were the last things I pulled out of the garden this season. I've never grown pumkins before so I didn't know what to expect. The starts I bought were these little pathetic looking things for only $1. I had my doubts from the beginning. While they're not Jack-O-Lantern size, I think they're perfect and a lovely way to start the fall season at our house.

In our home, any pumpkin is "carvable"!! Nice work though. I once grew 20+ pummpkins for the girls - it was quite a site! Let's just say I provided an entire preschool class with their own pumpkin. I have since that year NOT been able to grow a single one in my garden as the Japanese Beetles found my garden and now kill any that even think about growing. GRRRRRRR.....
