Master gardeners. . .


Yep, we are that good.  Pumpkins in August.  Didn't you know that's how it's supposed to work?  We were thinking about having a "Pre-Halloween" party just so we could show them off before they begin to rot (which is already happening as I post this).  I guess we should have planted them a little later than everything else. . .but aren't they pretty?

We have been buying heavily the past two weeks for our upcoming shows.  I hope to get some more photos taken tomorrow.  We are seriously running out of room.  I'm not sure how we are going to store everything but we still need more inventory so we had better figure it out!  I bought a large box of 1850's - 1890's papers and letters today out of an estate and I can't wait to sit and go through it.  Hope to have that chance this weekend!
Pin It!

ha, ha, lol. Oh we are like yall only we plant too late - like my hubs did with the okra. He said no, it doesn't matter it will grow til it freezes but it's been so hot and such a drought here there's no way we'll get a good okra crop.

I wish I could come to one of your shows!

Yes, they are beautiful pumpkins! Oh, well live and learn I guess. *smiles* I am jealous that you get to go through those papers. I've never gone to an auction/estate sale. My mom and her friend used to buy trunks and cabinets, etc. and find some of the most interesting things inside.

Oh how delightful those pumpkins are! A swift reminder that Fall is just around the corner. Great job in growing them - they look perfect. At least you know when to plant the next time around :-).

Oh your pumpkins are so pretty. I wonder if you put them in a cool place it will make them last longer?

Sweet pumpkins! I think a pre-Halloween party for the kids would be fun! Seems sad to waste good pumpkins! :-)
