The Harvest is In!

Well, Mother Nature dealt us another hand on Monday night - frost! So about 6:00 pm we decided we needed to get the patch picked. I rushed over there with my camera and got several pictures, admired our pumpkins, and then we got to work picking! There were alot of pumpkins!

I was sad that our grandkids didn't get to pick them, but Gene, Chelsea and I had a blast!

Look at our haul! The top one on the right weighed 80 lbs! The one to it's left weighed in at 70!
Most of the rest of the smaller ones weigh between 30 and 50 lbs! That's a lot of pumpkin!!! The rest of the little ones are actually different kinds of squashed that we planted!

The grandkids are coming this weekend to pick out their pumpkins, then we will have some of the neighbor kids come and get the rest! Grandpa's pumpkin patch was a hit this year!!!!
Hope you have just a pumpkin kind of day!!!

What gorgeous produce! How neat to see leaves that aren't sun-burnt and scorched! This Texas gal doesn't get to see stuff like that til November, if at all, LOL. Congrats for the harvest and have fun with the g-kids. <3
