Gardening is like cooking. To improve, you need to be willing to make mistakes and experiment. Also, common names are garbage. Zone 9b, West Sac, CA.

It was my roommate's birthday the other day (Oct 20) and, during the days prior, I had been racking my brain, trying to come up with bday gift/activity ideas. On the day of his bday, he sent me a random text message at 2 a.m. to suggest that we carve the pumpkins. And we did! (Followed by wine and weed by a backyard bonfire.) It was my first time to carve a pumpkin and his first time to smoke weed. Yay, new experiences and bonding!

Guys, I discovered a second #pumpkin! The leaves have been dying back, revealing this hidden gourd. If you like everyday surprises, plant a garden!

Is this pumpkin ready for a pickin'? I accepted two free little pumpkin starts in July, I had no idea what I was in for. They are LARGE, FAST-GROWING plants, yo. (Furthermore, the word #pumpkin can evoke alarming imagery if you turn it into a verb phrase.)

Are you hungry? If you want them sweet eat before October, or keep for carving

It get drier and more fiber strings. Better for seeds and carving, roasted later on in Oct

My five-year-old friend Westley was visiting. His reaction when I showed him this #pumpkin was: "Oh, crap! Jesus!"

Well, now I know that #pumpkin is kinda obnoxious. Cloaking the backyard with massive leaves, covering all smaller plants in its path, and showing no signs of slowing down. #sprawlingmonstosity
