Our pumpkin plants grew by chance from last years carving party on the deck. 3 plants grew and grew and grew. I didnt know what they were and they were taking over my flower bed.2 were sacrificed. The last plant has produced 1 perfect pumpkin already, bigger than a basketball and I have 2 more growing. The flowers are so pretty in the morning with all the bee's buzzing around. Now we dont have to buy any for halloween , hopefully!
