This summer I decided to include pumpkins in my vegetable garden. I thought it wold be cool to have my own home grown pumpkins in time for Halloween. The plants grew like crazy, almost like weeds. Their vines curled out and over, far beyond the edges of my vegetable garden. Unfortunately my gardener thought this was a problem that needed to be fixed. After the pumpkin massacre I was left with one lone survivor. She's doing rather well, considering. It's doesn't look like she is going to grow up to be a Jack-O-Lantern, I think she is destined to be a pie. A pumpkin pie.
On a happier note here is a picture of one of my herb crates filled with sunflowers. These herb crates are an idea stolen from The Lettered Cottage and purchased at Home Goods. Sunflowers just make me happy.
