October is upon us!

Yes, ma'am! We have our first pumpkin! I had all but lost hope that I would get any fruit, as I've been watching these amazingly large and colorful yellow-orange blooms all over the vine and not one forming bulb. Some of the vines haven't looked too good lately either. Such a puzzle, these creatures. My research told me that too much fertilizing can cause excessive flowers without fruit. No more food for these babies, at least for now. It'll be fun to watch it grow and change color. Hope we get some more! We've got pumpkins to carve!
