Before naps this afternoon, the girls and I went to the “pumpkin patch” as Miss E said. It really was just our (dead) garden which froze early a couple weeks ago. We had two pumpkin plants that we grew from seeds last spring. The sheer excitement and joy is best shown on the pictures. I had no idea last spring that two pumpkin seeds would lead to such rewards for the girls in the fall…or for me to witness.
Miss E congratulated her sister, Miss A. Then they each took a pumpkin inside with them and slept with it during their naps. I asked Miss E, “What did you learn from growing pumpkins?”
With out missing a beat, she said, “Well I learned I am really going a being a pumpkin farmer!”
