What Happens When . . .

. . . On November 1st, 2009 you toss your jack o' lanterns out into the field to be rid of them?

You may just find this in the excavation dirt pile 9 months later:

And you might catch a glimpse of one of these little cuties:

And a few days later you might notice it growing:

And then you might get excited. And start watering it. And checking on it multiple times each day.

Awww, isn't it cute?

That is so cool! We toss ours in the woods every year. However, the deer probably eat them too fast for them to grow!

Maybe next time I have some left over chocolate cake, I'll throw it out in the backyard? You think it'd work for that too?

Look at that!! We had to actually go to the store, buy pumpkin plants, put them in the ground, and water profusely (we don't have the NW moisture). We have LOTS of blossoms....but no cuties yet. Fingers crossed and prayers said that we'll have some pumpkins by Halloween. :D

Same thing happened to my friend! Her son put some pumpkin seeds out after Halloween and they took over their front yard! They had a pretty good size pumpkin a couple months ago too!

Colleen said...

Wow! I need to try that :)

that is awesome! we had a similar situation with cucumbers a few yeras ago- the plants were doing well so I threw them down the hill. fast forward three months later and Jon mows over something hard in the yard. thinking it is a toy he stops and checks, and finds a cucumber growing, along with several others, down our hill!

Very cool! We had this happen one year. My son took the little mini pumpkins outside to play with them and the next year we had a mini pumpkin plant growing under the swingset! It made one little pumpkin.
