A Great Pumpkin?

I’m so upset. I told my wife that we had pumpkins growing in the garden. I didn’t plant them. They just sprung up from seeds from old pumpkins I composted in the garden last Fall. I even showed her pics of the pumpkins growing so she wouldn’t throw our money away on buying pumpkins.

But still, she purchased pumpkins to place on our front porch for Fall decorations. What. A. Waste. I harvested the pumpkins from our garden and placed them in front of the ones my wife had so cavalierly purchased. Take a look. They look great.

Okay, so I have to admit the ones from our garden are a bit smaller, but they have a nice shape, perfect for carving!

And once our garden pumpkins are carved with their insides scooped out, I know exactly what my wife can make to compensate for her throwing our money away on the store-bought pumpkins …

Pumpkin Pies!

Okay, okay, maybe Mini Pumpkin Pies.

Alright, fine. Maybe one half of one Mini Pumpkin Pie.
