My only complaint about them was that the rind was sooooo tough, I needed a chain saw to cut through them.
Ok, that might have been a slight exageration. However, I did have to call upon DaHubster to use his massive bulging biceps to help out his wife....
....ok, I'm back. Sorry, got lost in a fantasy for a minute there. Heh.
This year I tried a different variety of pumpkin. It was a variety I got from my "Seeds of the Month" club from Mike the Gardner Enterprises.
Don't judge me.
Anywhoo, I didn't realize that this variety of pumpkin grows to HUMONGOUS sizes. I have a pumpkin that's too large for me to lift. It has to weigh over 40lbs.
Where's DaHubster? (drool)
|This shot doesn't really show how massive it really is. Those leaves could be worn as hats!|
|This dude is about 10lbs, and was hiding in a bunch of weeds.|
|this little dude is about 5 lbs.|
|this one is the smallest of the bunch, but it's a really pretty shape.|
