At the end of October we are usually cleaning up the garden. The potatoes, carrots and beets have been harvested. The tomatoes are long gone. The pumpkins have been picked and stored for Halloween. We pull the vines and compost them. This year has been so sunny and warm that our pumpkin vines came back to life sending out new vines, flowers and pumpkins. This past week we were talking about pumpkins and pumpkin patches. Our book showed pictures of all the growing stages, the flower, small green pumpkin and large orange pumpkin. After seeing the pictures I walked out in the Preschool Garden and picked a large yellow flower and a small green pumpkin. I took them in and set them next to the large orange pumpkin. There we had all three stages of pumpkin life right before our eyes ……. at the end of October! It's another fall miracle. Thank you, God, for your wonderful world!
