Pumpkin circle of life

Originally uploaded by lisablaschke
So remember the pumpkin patch we went to a few weeks ago. We all selected a pumpkin and I even got to pick one out for the purpose of carving. The problem was that it started wilting almost immediately. By the time Halloween rolled around it was a sloppy mess and there would be no carving into a Jack-o-Lantern for this thing. I set it out in the front lawn to scare away Hooligans and low and behold what do I find -- the wilty mess of a pumpkin gave birth to little baby pumpkin plants. The moral of this story is that even ugly old pumpkins serve a purpose -- even if's not to be cut open and carved.
