Ohio Pumpkins in Tennessee

I can’t believe I’m growing a pumpkin!  Multiple pumpkins!  When we first moved in, we scrambled to just throw some seeds in the ground for this season, and hoped for the best.  These particular seeds I had saved from a local Ohio farm pumpkin, not knowing if they were even viable.  I planted them everywhere here–the veggie garden, the fence, even the compost pile, and they went crazy.  The vines are climbing the fence, and the large yellow flowers are cheery along with the tall sunflowers I planted along the fence.  (I stuck some corn in there for laughs, too, but the soil here needs some serious amending before anything will thrive.)  The morning glories are finally exploding into color along the fences, so it’s like a Pride rainbow out there.
