Pumpkin Harvest

This year we had some crazy weather. The summer was Crazy HOT, ABOVE normal temps constantly. Now "Fall" has hit and it's really COLD, BELOW normal temps. Plus to make matters worse we had no transition, one day we were MELTING, the next FREEZING! Crazy!

Anyway because of these extremes home gardens have not flourished like they normally would. We planted three pumpkin plants (one White, one Orange, one Mini) this year. Last year we had one and got 3 HUGE pumpkins off of it. This year we got a small white a medium orange and 5 mini... That's it. To top it all off the vines were dying so we had to have an early harvest. Here's hoping they will last until Halloween!
