After last Halloween, we took our Jack-O-Lanterns and pumpkins to a field and used them for target practice. We left them behind for the local wildlife to enjoy. We let the field lay fallow.
The other day, I was walking the field and noticed something orange. It was a pumpkin. Our left over pumpkin seeds took to the field and left us a small pumpkin patch!
I am grateful for this October surprise!
