We've had a few volunteers in our garden this year.
Three pumpkins started growing all by themselves. They most likely came from seeds in our compost.
They made themselves at home in the pathway between the raised beds. We added extra straw underneath them so they wouldn't rot on the bottom.
The dragon flies like them too!
** Our curious chickens found how tasty the pumpkins were the day after I took these photos. They pecked holes in all three pumpkins. So. . . I've spent the last few days processing pumpkin pulp and seeds to freeze. So I have quite a few bags of pumpkin puree in my freezer. I love FREE food!
