This year, with our dear little one on the way, I knew I didn't want to do a lot of canning this fall, so instead of loading the garden up, I planted loads of pumpkins! They are easy to take care of, you don't have to weed around them, and oh so fun in the fall!
My kids are hosting a pumpkin sale this upcoming weekend and plan to make pumpkin cookies and the whole sha-bang. :)
Pumpkins are so fun because of the variety, and I firmly believe in the adage "variety is the spice of life."
