Arlo, What Have You Done?!
He’s out of his gourd.
Rookie husbands know sarcasm, and Arlo is a veteran.
If you’re going to buy that many of them, then you might as well grow them yourself!
Is Arlo out of his gourd?
Who knows. Janis may end up having the most sincere pumpkin patch around.
With her sarcastic reply, Janis squashed that idea.
Arlo, open your mouth and remove your foot.
County fair record on the way.
I did that last year, along with beets and tomatoes. Why grow something that won’t be eaten.
Use weighted plastic pumpkins that you can reuse every year. They come in all sorts of sizes and colors.
That look in her eye in the last panel is because she OD’d on Pumpkin Spice.
Who knows? Linus Van Pelt may show up in your patch!
We will eventually have a Nikita’s Gift persimmon by the entryway. It will have little orange pumpkin-shaped fruits that don’t ripen until late Fall after the leaves have dropped.
Why not? You already own the seeds. Roast some, plant some.
For the last five years, I’ve planted squash in the compost pile, and the things have taken over the garden. Didn’t do that this year.However, I had a volunteer grow in the squash pile this year, and one plant took over the garden. Have about two dozen squashes from one plant.I have no idea why I wrote all that in a comic comment, but it’s not a frothing-at-the-mouth political venting, so who cares?
My Mom once made pumpkin pie from pumpkins. They were OK but she said it was a hell of a lot easier to just go buy a can.
That’s using the old gourd!
I love her arrangement. Lots of cool pumpkin colors.

That is a great idea.
YES! A lot of different pumpkins, so to have pumpkins of all colours and dimensions.
I remember seeing cantaloupes in Japan for 5000¥ or around $50 US at the time
Plant pumpkin seeds in April for pumpkins in October.
Did that one year. Vines grew up the pine tree beside the flower bed. My wife did not appreciate the humor of pumpkins hanging from the tree.
They will spread like grass chiggers. Done that.
I let my kids set some pumpkins next to the mail box a few years ago. We still get pumpkin vines growing around it every spring. I bought some assorted small gourds this year so the garden will have more variety in the future. And we have melons of various types coming up net to the chicken pen from food scraps.
Why plant them in the flower garden? Why not plant them near the front door?
The squirrels did that for us this year…monstrous plant 10 feet long in the flower bed…and we didn’t know what it was going to be until a squash started to grow in August.
As long as there’s no pumpkin spice, negligible (one cupcake size only) pumpkin pies and no pumpkin soup
