Harvesting for Halloween!

Well, it's that time of year again for harvesting the pumpkins that have grown in the garden. We grow pumpkins every year in hopes that we will get enough to make Jack-O-Lanterns for Halloween. We usually can squeak out about 2 to 3 small pumpkins for the boys and Dixie to carve. This year we had good soil or rain or pumpkin plants and ended up with 3 huge pumpkins. They are the biggest ones we have ever grown. Dixie's favorite part of Halloween is carving pumpkins so I let her and the boys take care of that. While they were having fun gutting the pumpkins, I tore out the rest of the garden.

Here are the finished products with the boys in their costumes.

And Dixie came up with the perfect design for Ellie's pumpkin

Can you see the resemblance?

Here is Ellie's costume
