Such an enchanting article. I thoroughly enjoyed it. You definitely have a talent for writing. I would love to have my own pumpkin patch. I have grown them in the past, and what fun they are. I love all kinds, and the little gourds, too.
I have a perfect area for a veggie garden, especially gourds, but it would take an awful lot of work to get it under control. Right now it is taken over by several types of invasive plants. Wish I could just hire someone to come in and help me out. I would love to grow a giant pumpkin.
