Our one pumpkin is getting ridiculously large. There are several big marble sized ones getting started but this one is HUGE. Almost a foot across and it grows inches daily. It's nearly a foot wide and there's a small crack/split at the bottom from it's too rapid growth so this one will most likely be chicken food/compost pile topping but still it's lovely, wish it could make it till halloween. Um, I had no idea how massive and productive just one little pumpkin plant (one SEED!!) could be. This thing is taking over our yard. I've been putting up stakes to guide the vines growth (it sends off these adorable little curly mini-vines that attach to the nearest thing and pull it's jumbo vine along) and draw attention to where the vines are so running kids don't trample it.
the Gilead which I've been wanting to read fro some time), I love it when that happens!
