Frost has come & the Giant Pumpkin has been picked

Well, a frost came yesterday morning and by afternoon our garden was quickly transforming from a vibrant October producing garden into what appeared to be a lifeless plot settling down fornthe winter. But it is only early fall and underneath the ground our garden is still teaming with life and will provide us with root veggies for a bit longer.

Excitement came as we realized that it was time to pick our Giant Pumpkin. We don’t have a weigh in yet (I can’t pick it up alone) but it is 21″ tall and 64″ in diameter. It is flat on one side which is probably due to my lack of experience growing giant pumpkins.
