Pumpkin Patch 2008

About a week and a half ago I noticed that it was almost 120 days until Halloween. It takes just that long to grow pumpkins; so, I bought a packet of seeds. I planted the seeds in a small patch of bare ground behind my apartment building. So far, the sunflowers I planted a couple of months ago are growing fine. I hope the pumpkins will do as well. The pumpkin seeds actually sprouted very quickly, in about a week. Let's hope the crows, neighbors and gardener leave everything alone until Halloween.

Better get a "pumpkin patch" sign so the yard people don't take a weed wacker to the pumpkin vines...
