Do you remember back in July when I told you about the story of how my family accidentally grew a pumpkin? I know I know, how does this type of thing even happen?

Well, I'll give you a little back story before I give you the full update.

Here's how I ended up with a pumpkin growing in my yard.

 

Jump back to 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.

 

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.

You can read the full story HERE.

 

Now that you have a little back story about my unplanted pumpkin, I have a super exciting update. Not only did we grow an accidental pumpkin, we ACCIDENTALLY GREW FOUR!

Over the past 2 months, we have watched out little pumpkin vine grow into almost 20 ft of vine and blossom 4 of the cutest pumpkins ever if I may say so myself.
