Pumpkin Update: Harvested!!

*Reminder*  Please don't forget to enter my first giveaway HERE for the chance to win 2 banners,  one Halloween and one Thanksgiving.  The giveaway ends Thursday, Oct. 14 at 10 p.m. and the winner will be announced on Friday.

We decided it was time to head out to our mini pumpkin patch and pick our pumpkin!  It was almost completely orange and our front porch was in need of some color.  The pumpkin is a little smaller than it looked on the vine, but still big enough for Hudson to carve...well he won't actually be the one carving it, but you know what I mean.
Here's the hubby cutting it off the vine.

I think even the little man was excited about it! 
(His glasses were broken all week, but we got them back on Saturday.)

It has some cool warts!

I'm so proud of my first pumpkin...technically I grew my own pumpkins in first grade, but this time my parents didn't help me!
(not my best picture!)

The small pumpkin is still on the vine and has changed from light green to dark green, so hopefully that means it will be changing to orange soon and then we can pick it too.

  1. I love it! I love pumpkin decorations and have grown them in the past. Did you get orange/yellow colored flowers on your plant? If so, stuff with cheese, dip in egg and bread, fry and eat!
