Pumpkins For Sale!

What started as a whim has become a real whopper of a Pumpkin Patch.  We have Hubbards, Acorn Squash, Butternut Squash, Scallop Squash, Spaghetti Squash, and Pumpkins (LOTS OF PUMPKINS!!!!)

Like more pumpkins then we will ever use.  And we don't want to waste them, that would be sad.  So we decided we would set up a table next to the road and they could hang out there with a bucket for money.  So this weekend, that is what we have done.   We are asking $3 for the small ones and $5 for the BIG ones and we even have some of the other squash out there for various prices.
I figure the pumpkins in the store are starting at about $6 but who needs that, we are just selling our extra and if we sell one of the big ones that covers the cost of seeds for that garden.  Not trying to get rich or anything.
And what is the worse thing that could happen?  someone will come by and steal one.  Well, I guess that means they will need it more then I do.
I kind of like having a farm stand.  I like the fact that we were able to grow more then we needed.  Especially because my husband has even told me that he only helped me plant all those seeds to humor me, he never thought they would actually grow in that old manure patch.

Good point, though sometimes it's hard to arrive to definite conclusions
