Pumpkins

This year we planted pumpkins in our garden. If you've ever planted pumpkins, you know that the vines really spread. We had pumpkin vines growing up our corn stalks, and into our other garden boxes! Our largest pumpkin this year was 37 pounds. One funny thing was that as we started carving them, they smelled like cucumbers, and they didn't have the stringy inside. I guess they may have cross pollinated with the zucchini a bit.

That is so cool! Congrats on your pumpkinis--I think that word is too funny. Those pumpkin plants/vines have a mind of their own; good for you for taking on the challenge of a garden, and for actually harvesting something! Yay!
