I got the cutest email yesterday from my sister! My brother-in-law has taken up gardening. Not just flowers, but vegetables that his family can eat. He has grown tomatoes, cucumbers, all sorts of things. But something that is most exciting is that he has grown pumpkins!
Pumpkins are (reportedly) going to be extra expensive this year, since many were wiped out due to Hurricane Irene and excessive rain and flooding. But my sis and bro's pumpkins survived and thrived. There are even some baby pumpkins on the vine that are still maturing.
And guess how much all this cost? $1! That is a steal! Can't wait to see what designs my brother-in-law and niece come up with when they carve their jack-o-lanterns. They weren't hard to grow and were planted around mid-May. They aren't the kind of pumpkins you can bake with (sugar pumpkins) and are strictly going to be used for jack-o-lantern carving.
Here are some pics!

Big-girl and Baby love their pumpkins!
