Price of Pumpkins...


...We took our little pumpkin to "Daw Naws" (McDonald's) and to the Pumpkin Patch yesterday. $18 for 3 pumpkins! What?! Am I out of touch with reality? Do pumpkins normally cost that much? Well, having all the fun in the maze & around the patch was priceless, but I'm definitely transforming these pumpkins into pies in a week or so!





I hurt my Achilles tendon last weekend so I have been trying to stay off of it as much as possible. Yesterday walking around in the Pumpkin Patch's sandy gravel made it worse. I stayed off of it last night and made 2 little ponchos while sitting there with hubby & baseball game, using up all my bits & pieces. They are were suppose to be 12 month size but they turned out to be 2T or 3T. JJ screamed bloody murder when I tried them on him. Like he instinctively knew they were for a girl! Is that possible at 2 years old? He cried, they fit him, I cried. haha I plan to make more tonight. I am going to buy more yarn, make it smaller, maybe all the same color, and alter the pattern & maybe add a pretty lacy bottom edge. I'm going to send these to my other little niece, I'm sure these will be cute with a little pairs of jeans or jean skirt besides the blue & green will be so cute with her dark hair. I studied the picture they provided today, it shows only 8 rows with a border unlike the pattern. No worries though, these work up so fast and are fun to make plus I used my bits & pieces, so both of my nieces may end up with lots of them! I've got a huge space bag full of bits & pieces! I'll post a picture of the pattern I make.

What adorable photos and it looked like so much fun. To be honest the only pumpkin I buy are pumpkin pies. So, I don't know the price of pumpkins themselves however that does seem way out of line.

I've been thinking of making ponchos like that for the two little girls on my list.

We just got back from our pumpkin patch and we paid $25.00 for 3 big ones and 3 teeny tiny ones. Yes, pumpkins are so expensive......I miss normal prices on everything.

Booooooooo-to inflation/recession-I am so over it-HA!

Yea Boo! I sprouted some this year but pumpkins don't grow well without water. My bad. Next year I'll try again. I just sprout things then slowly watch them die. haha
