Pumpkin for Halloween?

Posted 29 September 2008 | By | Categories: Scenery | No Comments

This was a volunteer plant from some compost mix from the Arcata garden-waste place.  It’s been trying to grow now for a couple of months.  It just produced its first “fruit” — I assume and hope its a pumpkin.  Will it stay warm enough for the pumpkin to get any bigger?
