The great pumpkin harvest

We got ourselves some pumpkins! And a whole lot of buttercup squash.
Pumpkins can endure a couple light frosts, but six inches of snow and temperatures well below zero will turn them to mush. So we harvested them and brought them inside.

I let the Sergeant do the honors with the shelf pumpkin. I think it's the most perfectly shaped of our crop, thanks to the support he provided.
Now there's just a few days until Halloween. We've got some carving to do!


  1. Wow, beautiful pumpkins! Can't wait to see what all you make with them. Yum!

  2. Carving your own homegrown Pumpkins... What a treat!
    They're beautiful.
    Have fun!
