As it begins to get colder and autumn comes to an end, so does our time with the great pumpkin. The pumpkin survived hurricane Sandy and lasted through Thanksgiving. His seeds were harvested, and a delicious pumpkin pie was enjoyed.
Deer have been digging into the pumpkin (thankfully, they waited until now to enjoy some pumpkin).
We visited the pumpkin to see him one last time as he was cut into pieces. I kept thinking of the Charlie Brown scene when they carved the pumpkin and Charlie Brown sadly says "You didn't tell me you were going to kill it!"
Each piece was huge. 900+ pounds of pumpkin turns into a lot of giant pumpkin pieces.
I am already looking forward to telling you the story of next year's giant pumpkins. Will start the story early...from the seed.
Thank you for cheering on this giant pumpkin as he grew.
