It's the great pumpkin Charlie Brown!!!




Back in June, during the last week of school all the kids got a tiny little pumpkin plant to take home, the kids were to take care of their plant, and bring a pumpkin back in September to the Family Barbecue. So my daughter cared for her plant all summer, the plant eventually took over the garden, but no pumpkins. One day we noticed a small pumpkin, but a few days later the thing had rotted??? WTF? so my daughter was a little sad, and eventually gave up on this beast of foilage that was slowy taking over the back yard. I was too busy to cut back the thing so we just let it grow, and grow, and grow.........



Tonight I headed out to the garden to get some carrots for dinner and something caught my eye between the garden fence and the fence around our yard, burried amongst weeds and giant pumpkin leaves..........



Could it be................




That is one big F**king pumpkin!!!! It weighs 40-50 lbs. How does something like that stay hidden? Anyways, my baby is kicking ass tomorrow in the pumpkin contest....
