Do you have your pumpkins yet?
We have quite a few mini pumpkins now, but no big ones yet (to be remedied this week!). Wee girl's whole world gets brighter every time she sees one. She takes detours in a store, cranes her neck to see the pumpkin patch when we drive by while on one of our country drives, and spends most of the year asking me when Halloween is.
And mini pumpkins are so worth the buck! They last forever....and ever and ever and ever. I threw the last one from 2009 into the yard waste bin (which also takes compost materials) in August. Yes, August, 2010. And there was a whole lotta nothing wrong with it!
Wonder how long this year's batch o' mini pumpkins will last??
So, do you have your pumpkins yet? Do you celebrate Halloween, carve pumpkins, roast their seeds, cook up pumpkin goodness, climb hay bales, wander through corn mazes? Do tell! I love the tales that fall spins. :>
