 My 100% accidental pumpkin patch….  

Granted … there are 2 pumpkins …. but they were TOTALLY unintentional.  Last December – as we do every year – Nick and I tossed our old pumpkins into the gigantic dirt pile we have created behind the shed.  It’s always provided a solid pile of pretty fertile soil to dig up and use in pots when Spring arrives.  Normally – we’ve got the occasional Polk weed and dandelion growing out of it … SO you can imagine my surprise when I started to notice the unmistakable leaves of a vine plant! At first – I thought it might have been a cucumber or squash plant – perhaps some hidden seed that we tossed into the mulch pile.  AND THEN … I realized that’s exactly what it was – it was a pumpkin vine from the old pumpkins we had tossed the winter before!  The TIPS I have for having a Great Pumpkin of your own? Get yourself a beagle…. evidently it worked for Charlie Brown and me 🙂
