Last year we got pumpkins but did not carve them. I had left them on the porch so long that they got soft and the squirrels were able to get into them and get the seeds out.
This year I noticed a new plant growing in one of our flower gardens and later found out that it was a pumpkin plant.
So thanks to the squirrels we have pumpkins growing. The boys are having fun watching them grow. They check all the time to see how many we have and if there are any new ones. So far I have counted at least 10 but more have grown since I have last counted so I'm not sure how many we have.
I'll post updates on how our pumpkins are growing.
