Pumpkin Patch


Lots of masking on this one - so fun! We grew our own pumpkins this year, but our garden doesn't exactly look like this. They are sugar (pie) pumpkins, so they are small but so cute! It has been fun watching them grow. We only planted a few seeds since we knew the vines tend to take over, so we'll only have three pumpkins - one for each of us! The first one turned orange a couple weeks ago, and the last two are *almost* ready to pick - still a bit green, but turning more orange every day. Of course, we still bought one since we had to have a big pumpkin to carve for Halloween, but maybe next year we'll try growing some big ones too!

I love the depth of field you created and the little bit of shine on each pumpkin, too!

You did such a good job! I remember when I was little we went pumpkin picking and my mom would always make pies from our pumpkins - my poor kids only get pies from CANNED pumpkin!
