Do you remember my humongo front porch pumpkin from last year?
The one that weighed 100 pounds and almost gave my husband and I hernias trying to get it up on the porch.
When it was time to decorate the porch for Christmas last year, I tossed it into our garbage/junk/compost pile and forgot about it.
Well, lo and behold we've had a case of immaculate conception.
Or the seeds from last year grew.
Take your pick.
This one is about 24 inches tall right now and it still has growing time left.
Who knew a pumpkin would grow from pumpkin seeds?
No, I'm not a farmer. Thanks for asking.
We had the same thing happen to us last year. I couldn't for the life of me figure out where my dogs were getting pumpkins to eat until I went on a stealth mission and followed them. It's a good thing pumpkin is good for dogs!
Awesome! She will be ready just in time! We always throw pumpkin scrap on our pile, too, and every year get a few straggly vines to peep out and make a pumpkin. Bonus!

wow, thats great you got more pumpkins. I'm gonna be throwing all my seeds in the soil this year.
How exciting to see a pumpkin grow there.
You crack me up. I love your sense of humor! Also -- what a neat surprise!!!
I love it! What a welcome sight and maybe no hernias this year!

Seriously awesome! We spend so much money on cash every year for our Halloween party pumpkins. We try and try to grow them and the deer and ground hogs just help themselves to our outdoor salad bars. Good for you!
Probably next year and the year after and the year after...
Wow! Very cool.
Can't wait to see
how big this one gets!

That is awesome!
Wooo Hooo.. What a happy accident! I just love it- xo Diana
That is one Amazing pumpkin!! Thanks for stopping by Finding Fabulous the other day 🙂
I'm a pumpkin freak, so not only loved your giant find last year, but am rather jealous of your vine this year. Getting a bogo out of the one you got last year. How can you beat that! I always look forward to your porch décor each season. You always do such a great job.
Well, lucky you! Is there only one?
Pam, don't you just love easy gardening like that. We did not do our regular garden this year due to too much sports over the summer. However we also threw all the pumpkins in the garden when finished last year and I have a few orange ones and at least one white. Got to love free pumpkins. Alaina

It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown! hehe
I love it when this happens. We have had pumpkins and squash in our front flower bed before with the big question of how did that get there? but just went with it cause it was fun. This year I have a bunch of sunflowers growing as volunteers. Those seeds came from other sunflowers we had there before. What a great pumpkin you have.
