I didn’t get clear pictures of all the pumpkins but here are a few of the others. Sorry if you don’t see yours here. It doesn’t mean I didn’t like it.
EXTRA BONUS: Jackson carved a pumpkin today. He also designed it.

Last night was the 6th annual Stubblefield Pumpkin Carving Contest. We had fun carving pumpkins, and playing yahtzee.
Maridith was the big winner this year with both carving and yahtzee.
We’re not quite prepared for a major disaster. Let’s just say if we had to grow our own food the upside would be that we would lose weight. We joined a pumpkin growing contest of a friend and things were going pretty good for a couple weeks then the heat came. Our poor pumpkin plants couldn’t take the 116 degree temperatures and this is what happened. I had such high hopes of growing a massive pumpkin. Maybe next year we’ll start earlier and get a shade or something.
At least we can grow cute kids. We just won’t be able to feed them.
PS – The dress Lacey is wearing was Sarah’s when she was a little girl.
A friend of mine is doing this on their blog and we thought it would be a great idea for our friends and family to participate. Along with our annual pumpkin carving contest, we are going to hold a pumpkin growing contest. All the gardeners out there let’s see what you got! You have until the week before Halloween to grow the heaviest pumpkin. To participate just comment here to let us know you’re in and we will post occasionally to get updates.
We planted our seeds this evening and I installed a little sprinkler just for them. We have two large mounds of soil that we hope will be 100+ lbs pumpkins come October. Some of you live in much more fertile areas so this should be interesting don’t let us show you up down here in the desert.
*Extra points on the pumpkin carving if you carve a pumpkin you grew.
