{Not So} Wordless Wednesday – Pumpkin Gardening

The first three pie pumpkins from my garden (they are now completely orange).  Getting ready to cook them up for some yummy fall treats!  I am loving growing pumpkins in my garden.  They are crazy, and taking over my yard – but so neat to grow!  I have at least 5 more that will be ready to pick very soon.

A few more pics of the garden {taken on my iPhone}…

I started out with 1 tiny row in 1/2 of my raised bed garden….they took over the whole raised bed – plus the yard.  It now jets our at leas another 3 or 4 feet to the left of what this picture is showing.  Crazy I tell ya!  But I love it!

And just for fun….the giant Zucchini we found in the garden!

I have had SO MUCH FUN with this first little garden of mine!  Even with one of the worst droughts Texas has ever seen – the little garden did pretty well!  I am ready to double the size of it next spring….let’s see if I can get Jared on board with that!  😉


  1. I love your pumpkins! I just had pumpkin pancakes for the first time and really enjoyed them.

    That is one giant zucchini! Wow! :-)))) You did an awesome job with your garden. The weather was so crazy this year, it’s a miracle that any of us got anything from our gardens.

    Hope you have a great rest of your week!
    Many blessings,

  2. Thanks Lisa! Mmmmm, pumpkin pancakes! Sounds delish! I might have to try that!

  3. I love that feeling when things grow so well! It’s very gratifying 🙂
