Pumpkin Patch

This is our newly planted pumpkin patch. It's our first attempt at growing pumpkins so we are quite excited. We have two different plants that are giant varieties and a few plants that produce mini pumpkins. With a bit of luck we will end up with at least a couple of orange beauties to decorate with this fall!

Last fall, my son was inspired to by a little friend who won a ribbon at the local fair for her pumpkin. He left her house either wanting to grow pumpkins or raise chickens, since she was keeping busy with both at the time. I eagerly suggested the pumpkins and snuffed out any crazy ideas of building a chicken coop.

I'm not sure we will produce anything blue ribbon worthy, but we are going to at least have fun trying!
Any pumpkin growing tips are encouraged.
