As The Trowel Turns…
After a cold and rainy spring… things are finally starting to look up in the garden…The 17 garden boxes we made a few years ago are beginning to fill and in a few weeks the cabbage will be ready to harvest.
The cucumbers and zuchhini will be next… followed by the much anticipated tomato harvest… (That’s the best part of summer if you ask me). 🙂
But the one thing I’m really looking forward to is fall. It’s my favorite season of them all. This year I went ahead and planted about a dozen of pumpkin plants along the fence line… In years past I’ve planted sunflowers or potatoes… but this year I chose pumpkins… I’m hoping for not only a bumper crop… but to turn my backyard into a mini pumpkin patch for my kids and their friends… For the cost of a packet of seeds… (well… okay actually I picked them up for free at Rite Aid) it’s the first step in planning one seriously FABulessly FruGAL party!
How about you? Did you plant any pumpkin seeds this year?
