Pumpkins Galore

Sorry it has been so long since I have posted anything.  My computer has been out of service for a while.  I am back now and ready to tell you about my pumpkins.

I had a good tun out of pumpkins and gourds this year.  Not as many as last year, but that was intentional.  Last year was a bit overkill.  This year I planted a variety of gourds and pumpkins.  I am already ready for spring so I can start over again.  The large one was 80 pounds.  I was hoping for over 85 because my biggest last year was that big.

THE Pumpkin

Last year was good for me when it came to pumpkins.  I had a ton of gourds and pumpkins.  This year I have not planted quite so many, but still have high hopes for getting the one.  Last year I not only had a lot of them but, I also had a HUGE pumpkin.  85 lbs. to be exact.  It took 3 of us to get it on the bathroom scale.  I just had to know how big that thing was.  I have never been so proud of something I have grown.  I loved it when people would comment about it or ask if I bought it.

The 85 lb.er.  I have to say the picture doesn’t do it justice

And… this years plant that will give me a even bigger one (I hope).

I have more plants, but I have a feeling about this one.  LOL
