Making a Jack-o-lantern
My one wish for the garden this year was for some fall
pumpkins and gourds!
Resident agronomist had a new area tilled and
planted gourds, 'sketti squash, butternut squash
It has been fun watching all of these new additions to the garden.
The pumpkins are already turning orange--so the challenge
will be to keep them from rotting before Halloween.
It will also be a challenge to keep the resident 'critters'
from enjoying these tasty treats. However...
I am happy with however these turn out--if the
deer want a treat, I am sure it will be enjoyed.
If they only last as fall decorations, that is fine too.
It has just been a joy watching them grow.
