We always go to the pumpkin patch to get our pumpkins, but I buy some at the grocery store, too.
I hate to carve them, but DS loves it so we always do one for him. That one gets tossed after Halloween, the ones that aren't carved stay on my porch until after Thanksgiving, when I replace them with poinsettias.
When I say tossed, I throw it in the woods. The deer and the rabbits appreciate it.
I bought a pack of seeds to plant some gourds, but I didn't get around to it this year. Come April, that's the first thing I'm planting.
Mama to Henry (01.07), Catherine (09.11), Audrey (04.14), Clare (09.15) and our newest addition, coming July 2017!
