~*What Do Ya Do With a Pumpkin In July?*~

Hello Dear Friends! The kiddo & I have the answer to the question ~ What do ya do with a pumpkin in July?



Yes, this pumpkin is early... about 3 months early. We didn't plant it, but we did pick it from our backyard. You see, each year after we are done with them, we throw our Jack~O~Lanterns and pumpkins out in the brush pile... way out in the back of our property. We sometimes get lucky & have a volunteer plant shoot up. This is one of those lucky years! We picked this one just the other day... and it looks like we may get lucky with a few more, as there are more blooms on many of the shooter vines of the plant.

So, what do ya do with a pumpkin in July? Oh heck, that is easy to answer. You make a Jack~O~Lantern of course!





Wishing you all many warm smiles & a fabulous weekend ahead...
Betty

  1. That is so cute. With the heat we're having, that pumpkin and what it represents (fall and coolness) looks so good.

  12. Great jack-o-lantern face. What fun.
    We used to write the grandkids names on them, like scratched in with a nail, when the pumpkins were small and they could watch their name and the pumpkins grow together.

  13. We have that happen with ours too.
    Even the ones that mooshed on the stoop, left seeds, so we had them growing in the front too.
