Growing Pumpkins

This is my pumpkin patch this year. One of my
favorite things to grow is pumpkins. I love everything
thing about them the shape, the color, the pies.
Last year I grew them and I had so much fun,
in the fall.
My grandchildren love them too and got to take as
many home as they wanted, the girls could decorate
with them as much as they wanted and so could I, and then
of course, the best part I got to give them away. That is
as I have said before, I love giving produce away, almost
as much as I enjoy eating it.
Here are some pictures from last year's pumpkins.

My giant ones were so nice. My daughter went out
with a nail when they were still green and decorated

This was one of my favorite pictures because I had
no idea there were that many small ones out there.

This is my old wheel barrow filled up with pumpkins
on my porch. I think that is my favorite thing to look
at in the fall is a wheel barrow filled with pumpkins.

I loved looking out my windows and seeing lots
of pumpkins everywhere.

It is still Thankful Thursday, and I think what I
am thankful for today is " In the Beginning God...
planted a garden...
Have a wonderful Thursday!

Oh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness, for His wonderful works to the children of men!

(Psalm. 107:6)
