Growing Pumpkins...

We are trying to at least!  
HOME GROWN carving the ones they carved last year!
As you know, I have a blast planting and caring for my "back patio" garden!  It's soothing to my soul!
Last year, after the kids carved their pumpkins...we saved the seeds and decided to try to plant a few this summer, to see if we could grow our own "homegrown" pumpkin patch.  We dried a full bag of there are plenty to plant and grow if it does end up working out well!
So far, they are growing and blooming!  Whether or not we actually get a pumpkin from the process, is still be seen...but it's always a beautiful process of just simply watching a seed turn into a seedling, then into a baby plant and finally into a beautifully blooming & fruit producing plant.
My fingers are crossed...because how awesome would it be if we didn't have to visit a pumpkin patch (or the nearest Target) to get our pumpkins this year...but instead, we could simply go on our back patio and pick them ourselves!  AWESOMENESS!  

I was not paid to feature this post!  I was not compensated in any way by posting about our pumpkins.  All pumpkins purchased for carving last year were purchased on my own behalf.  All opinions are my own!
