Fam Friday - Punkins

Life on the Funny Farm

I planted something new-to-me this year.

Pumpkins.

I have this stone wall that I usually plant annuals by, but then I don't keep up with the weeding and it looks like an embarassing jungle.

So I thought, pumpkins grow all rambly and viney, so if I plant them by the stone wall, it'll still look like a jungle, but like it's supposed to be a jungle.

There is a difference.

I planted them late, so I don't know if I'll have mature pumpkins before we get hit with frost, but I'm hopeful we'll have something. Kids can paint them, we can set them on the porch, we can feed them to the chickens.

It's all good.

Fingers crossed!
