Every year after the pumpkin season is over,
I always have a perfectly good pumpkin left, the ones I
don't carve anyway.
I leave them in the house all through the Christmas season,
and the long months of winter.
But low and behold, around March or April,
I notice the tale-tale signs of Pumpkin rot and out
gos the pumpkin! Sometimes I'll toss it in the compost pile, or just
place it under my little dogwood tree...surprise, surprise!
Seedlings are sprouting,
But after more inspection of rotting pumpkins under my tree,
I discovered another pumpkin vine, which is well on its way
to, hopefully producing a big blooming pumpkin.
This vine is from a pumpkin I set out 2 years ago!
Okay, Cinderella, get ready, your coach is on the way!
At least something is growing in this heat, besides weeds.
