Yesterday I came across a good surprise.
A few sprouts of my favorite thing, PUMPKINS!
Last year I had put a couple of pumpkins in an old wheel barrel whose blooms had long since passed. So I covered the dirt with big orange globes and called it decorating.
Fast forward several months.
Those pumpkins sat there and rotted, which is a good thing.
BUT, I still didn't know if anything would happen. In years past I would throw all the pumpkins in the compost pill and nothing would happen.
Someone has since told me that the seeds inside a pumpkin aren't going to grow because they are sterile.
Guess they were wrong!
I'm a happy camper! Even Hubby is excited (he sees less money spent at Halloween).
Any how, I'm going to take those little sprouts and plant them all over my yard and cross my fingers that I get pumpkins this year!
Take care, Brandie
