No Fooling!

Reasons why a pumpkinman is better than a snowman...
* no snow required * won't melt when you hug him * reseeds himself for next year * discourages solicitors * washes clean in the rain * fun to watch grow * changes outfits with the seasons * goes well with whipped cream...

Yes, this was our 2005 Christmas greetings. Now you've seen it all and the last of the big pumpkin (with his sheep wool beard). We roasted the giant seeds in January (but the rest of him was getting squishy).

I love it! Will there be a pumpkinman again this winter? And maybe a pumpkinwoman too? :)

Love the pumpkin man and it looks like your seeds are doing well. My sweet peas will be grown in the garden- I have about 60 tall growing plants and the same again of training ones to go in baskets and pouches to decorate the oast barn where we are getting wed (www.swallowsoast.co.uk) Last night I moved them all out of the greenhouse, up close to the hose on the sheltered patio and wrapped them securely with the bubble wrap from the greenhouse- to insulate them. I've got too many to be taking them in and out each day, but as no frosts are forecast this week, they should be ok if I wrap and un-wrap them every day. What sort of climate do you live in? My sister-in-law to be lives in Mississippi and can’t grow sweet peas, as it gets too hot!
