it's a pumpkin vine. & it's huge. last year when our pumpkin started decaying we just decided to leave it in the flower bed because who wants to pick up a rotting pumpkin? also, we figured people pay big bucks for good, organic fertilizer & isn't that basically what a rotting pumpkin is??! mmmhmmmm, yeah. so voila! this year we have a pumpkin vine! no pumpkins yet, but i'll keep you posted. maybe there will be one for a thanksgiving pumpkin pie...
since our pumpkin isn't ready yet, we went ahead & went to the pumpkin patch this weekend. besides, they have a train, bounce houses, barbeque, & hundreds of pumpkins & we only have the one vine. hudson had a blast. here are the requisite pics...
