Pumpkin Update

Alrighty's how it went: the seeds got planted, they sprouted
and grew into a vine that got bigger and bigger and then it started flowering
and the bees came and pollinated the flowers and little pumpkins started
forming and then they grew bigger and bigger until they were
big enough to engrave..whew!!! And that's where I am at-
CRUNCH TIME. It is now or never for decorating
these pumpkins. So I am having a ball out in the patch
but I am ripped to shreds! These pumpkins take
their pound of flesh. Here's a peak at what is
going on out in the patch.....
a mini turban-already starting to change color

I have wanted to grow Yugoslavian finger fruit
for a couple of years so this year I finally
did. Wierd aren't they?
