Our pumpkins are growing!!! :)

Hey Y'all! We had some awesome kids out to the farm the other day to help us find our new baby pumpkins growing!! :) Look at what we found!!!  The pumpkins are still small now, but will be huge by Oct!

Can YOU find the baby pumpkins growing under the pumpkins blossom?

It can be tricky finding your way through the pumpkin patch without stepping on the vines and plants! 

This one's growing fast! 
Did you know that pumpkins do not begin to turn orange until they are fully grown?

This one's bright yellow! That is because it is a different type of pumpkin. 
This type is called a Prize Winner!
