A few years ago we started throwing some pumpkin seeds near the compost piles. They grow like crazy back there and they can stretch out as much as they want. This is what we found the other day:
I'm sure there are more out there, but it's pretty weedy and I couldn't see them all. This one looks just the right size for a Jack 0' Lantern.
We didn't find this guy in the pumpkin patch, but he is our "little punkin"!
Do you see Tad's t-shirt? It says "My dad's a Geek". Love it!
