I have been feeling a tad bit guilty here as I haven't updated my pumpkin pictures in a week. Then just when I thought I couldnt feel any worse about neglecting my little pumpkpin gal, Mother Nature decides to teach me a lesson. Last night we had a ginormous storm complete with marble sized hail....I havent seen hail since I was a kid!!!
So needless to say, I was a nervous wreck regarding my many fruit and veggie plants. During the height of the storm when the weather center was warning us of possible tornados, I was at the window closest to my tomatoes swearing out loud that if need be I would go out there and protect them with my body ....of course I know better, but anyone who has watched their beloved 'maters bending in the wind knows my pain.
So here are last weeks pumpkin shots. I dont have anything next to them for size comparison as they are fenced in now(for safety reasons).
In this shot , she is around baseball sized ^
Here you can see how the pumpkin is dangling in the bushes.
Now it is around softball sized.
I know that it is even bigger today, and if dinner(pizza) hadnt just arrived I would be posting more, but got to run ....More pumpkin coming soon!!!
