Going to be some happy kids this Halloween....and maybe some pies for Thanksgiving?
Do not go out alone...that thing looks dangerous and hungry.Janex
How many fruits on that monster vine?!?
Those three pictured are down on the parking lot. The vine is growing from about six feet up on the heap. We don't know what may be up there, although if there they would be in danger of rolling down and smashing soon.
When I was a little kid... maybe 4 years old... we had a sandbox. Somehow a pumpkin vine got started there... took over the WHOLE place. My siblings and I lost our "playground" for quite a while... I think the cat still visited, though ;-)
Must try and grow one they are very interesting and I might get a pumpkin.Merle...........
I never met a pumpkin I didn't like - so LOVE this vine.
Are you growing one of those giant pumpkins?
You didn't by chance plant some magic pumpkin seeds? I'd keep an eye out for giants just in case.
pumpkins make pretty/wierd faces for Halloween OR pies...Not both. Two different kind. my Grandpa used to take his knife and scar out names into the skin..When ripe it was terrific..
Seeing a pumpkin makes me think of Halloween.
Wow! I'm impressed. That is just so much fun.
Hari OMOf course being YAM-yum all I can see is pumpkin soup, pumpkin pie, pumpkin sauce for idlis, pumpkin and rhubarb tarts, green pumpkin chutney, baked pumpkin..... and of course a jack-o-lantern! YAM xx
Are there two types of pumpkins or will the green one turn yellow as it matures?
They will all turn orange in time.Again, the plant must be from a bird feeder pumpkin seed in the neighborhood; no telling if it is pie worthy.The road super hopes they don't disappear before Halloween. He would like them for decoration on Main Street, where he sits every year on Beggars Night and passes out candy "because no kids come to his house," which is up a country road.
My father used to grow pumpkins in his front yard. I didn't care to eat them, though. On the other hand, I love pumpkin pie.
The sign of the next season...Pearl
Envy, I feel such envy...now to make some pumpkin pie.
Your photos sent me to the grocery store, and now I have two hand-made pumpkin pies. Waiting, waiting...
Things are busting out all over! All of my tomatoes are getting ripe at once.
Love it !
Pumpkins are a favorite vegetable of mine. They are so versatile.
Warning - off on a tangent here - when I saw the word "punkin" it reminded me of my brother's "punkinhead" toy - kind of like a teddy bear but quite ugly ... I still don't know why they'd make a kid's toy look like that ... does anyone else remember those?
You remind me we've just reached that time of year when I regret not growing pumpkins. If you want to see weird, wonderful alien life there's no need to watch scifi on TV - one simply has to look in the garden.
