The Pumpkin Patch

Audrey is the pumpkin farmer around here and she is very good at her job.

The pumpkins are growing like crazy right now. There are already several cantaloupe or bigger sized pumpkins on the vines.

She planted these by seed earlier this spring. There are actually two plants growing quite close together here, which is what you get when a three year old picks where to put the only two seeds you handed her. Thank goodness I didn't give her more than two, we would be overrun by pumpkin plants. 

And this is a volunteer from a pumpkin that rotted on the vine from her plant last year. Or quite possibly several volunteers all growing close together, I'm not sure, but it is definitely thriving.

At the rate they are all growing Halloween might just come early to our house this year.
