Growing my first FP's...blossom side down...lol. Really just hoping this one gets big enough to be a decent jack o lantern. Pruned this vine as well a couple leaves after the fruit. Of course these were just store bought seeds and not any special lineage. Perhaps I can acquire better seeds for next year!

These are basically just decorative pumpkins. It would seem they are beginning to ripen already. Somewhere between softball and soccer ball size.

Harvested a couple small ones today. Looks like the fall decor is coming out early!

Put a trash bag under this one because I'd hate to lose what will probably be a good carving pumpkin.

So pretty sure this is a stem split here at the base. Doesn't seem to have bothered anything but not sure how that happened.

Also something seems off with this stem as well. Again, vines don't look bad in any case.

This FP jack o lantern number 2. More round in shape than the other one. Maybe the bees crossed it with one of my pie pumpkins?
