Pie

We're not great gardeners.
In the spring and early summer we're pretty gung-ho with the planning and the digging and the plant purchasing, but we always stall out mid-August or so.
This leaves the garden to do what it will, and this year, for the first time ever, we got a pumpkin.
It never grew very big, and it ripened a little earlier than I anticipated.
Too early to be a Jack-o-Lantern, but really too small to be one anyway.
The Elder Hug-a-Bug requested some pumpkin pie this morning so that's what we did.
It was delicious. Thanks Garden.

Excellent! We made BLTs with our handful of small tomatoes from the garden. :)

YEAH! A pumpkin for pumpkin pie. An herb garden would be right up your alley btw. I tend to do the same with a veggie garden, work hard a first than fizzle out. My gardens love that kind of attitude, they are pretty easy to just plant and "forget about it." :)
