Pumpkin Plantin' Time

These couple of acres will soon be filled with growing pumpkins and gourds. There will be hundreds to choose from - I absolutely LOOOOOVE to watch them grow.

This is my sweet hubby Shaun laying off a row for gourds which my lil' boy, Casen is planting out of a SOHO cup - isn't that cute? It's great when we all get to do stuff like this together - Casen develops a great sense of pride about it 'cause he calls them "HIS pumpkins" and "HIS gourds". That's O.K. - I'm glad he likes to help!

I know it is hard to imagine pumpkins while we are in the middle of the 4th of July holiday week - but it's time if we want pumpkins for fall decorating. This day here in Kentucky was picture perfect - almost fall-like. No humidity, great breeze, beautiful blue skies - I'm so grateful for this day and for being able to use our land to grow things that we and others love and enjoy!

Happy Plantin' Friends,
Cathy Cobblestone

It is hard to believe that pumpkins will soon be covering that area. It wll be nice to see what your farm/shop will look like with all the pumkins scattered about.

I hope you show pics as the pumpkins start growing! How exciting that must be. I can never have enough pumpkins come fall.

I learned something new :O) We have pumpkin patches around here and at the end of fall there are always soo many left in the fields, I thought they just plowed them under and they planted themselves! :O) I didn't know they planted each year, how neat to have that to do as a family!

I can hardly wait to see those big
orange squash laying in those fields. I do believe that is my favorite fall scene.
