Pumpkin Hunting

October 21, 2018

Several years ago in the spring my sweet mom started planting a bunch of pumpkins in part of her garden. Over the summer they grow and eventually overtake a large bank of dirt. Not being one to be satisfied by just big smooth orange carving pumpkins, she planted several fun varieties with textures and bumps and colors. We’ve made sure to keep that going over the year. Today it was time to harvest.

Hunting for pumpkins is serious business. It takes a well-trained scout like Grandpa to find only the best.

Carving pumpkins are great, but there are way more out there to pick from!

Sometimes when you pick up a pumpkin, you run off with a worms house.
