Homegrown Pumpkins 2019

Here are the pumpkins we grew in our garden this year!

This is the first year we intentionally tried to grow our own pumpkins.

If you’ve been around here for a while, you’ll remember the fiasco that was our accidental pumpkin patch (If you missed it, you can catch up here!)!

After the enormous success of that pumpkin patch, we were pretty confident we could grow an awesome pumpkin patch on our land.  After buying pumpkins last year, we decided to go for it & grow our own this year.  We headed off to a local greenhouse & purchased 3 small pumpkin plants.  That would be enough to grow a successful patch, right?

Wrong.

After showing a lot of promise with vines & flowers everywhere, we only ended up with 3 pumpkins!  3 very beautiful pumpkins…but still only 3 pumpkins!

I wouldn't call this a great success, but I can't bring myself to call it a failure, either!  The "patch" did produce something, even though that something wasn't the result I was hoping for!

You can't win them all, I guess!

Now I'm debating if it's too late to buy pumpkins!

As I've said before, I'm super late with my fall decor this year!  I'm at the point now where I can push forward or just stop!  Either way won't worry me at all!  I'll keep you posted on what I end up doing!

At least I have my 3 pumpkins!
