This year I bought my little niece a packet of giant pumpkin seeds. I thought she would take them home and plant them. No, her and her dad planted them in his backyard – which adjoins our backyard . In their little patch we also threw in some regular pumpkin seeds, cantaloupe and watermelon seeds. The vines went absolutely crazy! Next year, I think we should be a little more organized about it, but we did manage to grow one giant pumpkin. When we finally picked it we discovered that it weighs 70 lbs! (I kept telling him to lift with his legs, but you know how brothers are!)
It’s almost big enough for my niece to crawl into! Here are her and her dad showing off their pumpkins.
Here are the other girls with the pumkins they chose out of the patch
