We Have Pumpkins!!!!

I CANNOT believe it.  All our past efforts to grow pumpkins have always failed but THIS TIME.....

a "volunteer" pumpkin plant started growing out of our compost bin and POOF: We have some awesome looking heirloom pumpkins. I AM SO HAPPY!!!

It figures with our gardening luck the year we don't try to grow something it magically appears and does wonderfully without any work on our part.

I believe these pumpkins are the "tan cheese" type peachy tan colored pumpkins that are a little more flat on the tops rather than like a round ball.

Yay for beautiful pumpkins that have appeared out of nowhere! I've been itching for fall to get here because I don't know about you but I sure am ready for cooler weather, beautiful leaves, hot apple cider, sweaters, and all things pumpkin :)

My homegrown pumpkins are just what I needed to get inspired and excited for autumn!
