This is the prize in my garden.  I know it's small.  I know the leaves surrounding it look sickly.  But I am just so proud and excited about this darn pumpkin.

I've never grown a pumpkin before.  Never had the land.  Or a place where rabbits wouldn't get to it first.

So now I wait and watch and hope that my pumpkin will flourish and survive.  And make the prettiest little jack o latern on my stoop come Halloween.
