Today I planted three pots of giant pumpkin seed (oh, the image in my head re-reading that sentence - the pumpkins will be large, friends, the seeds are regular size). Later we’ll plant the best one or two transplants outdoors.
The seed package claims these pumpkins can reach 100 pounds! That’s a lot of pumpkin pie.
Each week or two, I’ll post a picture of the pumpkin’s progress.
I don’t need more pumpkin for our baking needs, as we’ll have lots of sugar pie pumpkins for that. And a giant pumpkin isn’t really something you grow for re-sale.
I live on a vegetable farm where every inch counts towards productivity (and thus profit). But sometimes you have to do something just because it’s fun.
Are you planning to do something in the next few days just because it’s fun? Not because you have to, or should – but just because it will give you a smile.
