I have strawberries in October, but I don’t have any pumpkins! To me that is perplexing! I have always considered fresh strawberries a spring treat, but this year, with the addition of a day-neutral strawberry variety, we are eating fresh strawberries in October. They are sweet, juicy extra special fall treat.
How in the world did I forget to plant pumpkins?! We must have skipped that section of seeds at the garden center. Our lack of pumpkins created the perfect opportunity to go to the pumpkin patch, though! I know it would have been much cheaper to have bought a couple packets of seeds last spring than buy an arm load of pumpkins this fall, but oh well, the pumpkin patch was a fun family outing…except for a little pouting from my four-year old.
What perplexing things happened in your garden this year?
