Things that Grow

Sorry I've been gone a few days. I wasn't feeling well this weekend and then had trouble getting everything back to "normal." Today I did some yard work. Here is a picture of the pumpkin growing in my garden!


I hope it turns orange in time for Halloween! I'm a little disappointed because the vine has taken over the entire garden and only produced one pumpkin. Well, there was another rotten pile of mush that looked it could have been a baby pumpkin last week, but today it was mush.

This next picture may be a little more difficult to figure out. You might think you are looking at a picture of Kennett Square (Elizabeth, that reference is for you ;) ). In case some of you don't know, Kennett Square, Pennsylvania is the Mushroom Capital of the World, and No, I did not just make that up. Check it out here. They have a mushroom festival, a mushroom museum and lots of other mushroom attractions, I guess.

So while this may look like a picture taken at one of those risque mushroom social events, it was actually taken in my backyard. And I didn't plant mushrooms. They are taking over the grass. Or maybe just this old tree stump. But they are still threatening the grass around it. OK, so maybe I'm a little prejudiced against mushrooms. I don't like them in my yard!

Hmm. I was just thinking that given the way the ONE cucumber plant I put in this year took over the garden and has (when planted late) given me 14 cucumbers and counting, I should do pumpkins next year. God forbid I end up with only one though. And actually, white pumpkins are my favorites! Good luck with the gardening (and the getting healthy)

I wouldn't want mushrooms in my yard either--I'd be afraid my sons would eat them. It's so dry here, we don't have to worry about mushrooms.

Ohhh how fun. I would love to grow a pumpkin. I think my girls would love it. I hope yours is orange in time.
