Life is crazy busy at the moment with fall chores and all the kid activities. I decided to take a quick moment today, however, to post some pictures of our harvested pumpkins. Despite the mildewy mess in the pumpkin patch, we still have quite a few pumpkins for decorating and carving!
We tossed all the mildewy vegetation over the river bank instead of potentially contaminating our compost pile with the fungi spores. The pumpkin patch is mostly cleaned up and ready for tilling this fall.
I also planted decorative mini-pumpkins this year. The vines are growing on my garden fence and have been very prolific.
I have started picking these cute little things for decorating around the house.
After using 4-5 of them for decorating the dining table, I am at a loss as to what I am gong to do with the other fifty mini-pumpkins. Any ideas?
