Pumpkins

Clare recently bought a new onesie for Meg with some pumpkins on it, and the text “daddy’s little pumpkin”, which pleased me, since she has lots of “i love mommy” shirts, but not many shirts with “daddy” on them. Clare put that on Meg this morning, and I got the great idea of taking a picture of Meg with the giant pumpkin that we grew in the garden this year. Not only did Meg’s shirt match the pumpkin, but I thought it would also be a good indication of how big the pumpkin is. We probably could have gotten it bigger, but we didn’t try too hard. Clare had originally suggested that growing a pumpkin could be fun. When I went to buy plants, the only one I could find was a giant pumpkin, so I bought it. It got quite big very quickly. It probably would have gotten bigger had I watered it more and given it more fertilizer, but I wasn’t really interested in having a 1000 pound pumpkin. It is probably about 100 pounds. I didn’t weigh it.
