Kristi & Her Family Accidently Grew A Pumpkin
You're probably wondering how someone accidentally grows a pumpkin, but I promise that's really what happened.
Here's how I ended up with a pumpkin growing in my yard.
Let's go back to the Spring of 2020 when the world stopped, and we all decided we needed to try new hobbies. What did I choose to try as a new hobby?
Welp, I attempted to see just how good my green thumb was. I didn't get any further than having my husband Stephen build me a few raised garden beds in our front yard. Why not? Well, life happens, and my garden didn't. Haha!
Fast forward to the Fall of 2020 and all things spooky. Just like every other year around Halloween, we carved our annual pumpkins. We normally line our porch stairs with our freshly carved jack-o-lanterns but decided to line them up across the lawn in my unused garden beds.
3 of the pumpkin carved were your traditional carved pumpkins, but my son, Logan's pumpkin, looked like it spilled its guts and seeds everywhere. Halloween of 2020 came and went, and so did the life of the pumpkins.
Early June of 2021, we realized that something was growing in one of our raised beds, which we didn't plant. That something was a pumpkin. Apparently, one of those seeds from Logan's gut spilled pumpkin decided it would grow right there in our unused raised bed.
So, friends, if you also want to grow a pumpkin, carve a pumpkin and leave it there. The seeds will eventually start the process of growing into a pumpkin.
