Crazy Pumpkins

Standard

I got this idea from this post that I came across during Halloween and different things to do during Fall.

So I thought it would be kinda fun to see if I could actually grow my own Halloween Pumpkin for next year.  Little did i realize how successful I was actually going to be.  I kept all the insides of my pumpkin (seeds and all) and put a few giant handfuls of it into a pot with soil instead of using a pumpkin like they have in the picture in the blog. I didn’t think i should plant them all as I had no idea what was going to happen to them so I just stuck the rest in the compost.   I thought I was going to get maybe one or  two plants, a half dozen if I was really lucky.

BUT…I was WRONG! So very very very wrong!

There have been close to 50 plants that have shot up, and not just in the pot I planted them in, but from the compost too!

Now I’ll just have to wait and see what happens to them after I replant some out so they have more space, maybe I’ll even bring some to school to plant.  I will be super happy if just even one of these seedlings makes it to the fruit bearing stage and I get one tiny pumpkin out of it.  We will just have to wait and see!
