Seeing Is Believing.....

      These are the huge pumpkins I have been wanting to  photograph. Some are white...I am not sure if this is just from them being so big or the type. The leaves look like umbrellas. 
  Here's an orange one kind of off to itself.  I was going to get out of the car and go to the door of this person's  house and ask to take photos. But as we drove by, I just snap pictures.
  This perspective really makes the pumpkins look as big as a garage. LOL  They are not that big.
  Here's one near the edge of the property. I can't even guess how much it weighs.
  I saw they used a block and tackle to lift them to this trailer. I wonder where it's going.
  Now look at the watermelons  with these pumpkins....they are the biggest I have ever seen.  This person's yard is a wedge shaped property and it's just about all garden.   Watermelons and sweet corn on the south side of the house. The pumpkin patch was on the north side. These picture are untouched, because I do not even know how to do any such thing. My husband and I agreed the block and tackle must have be put to the test just picking them up. 
  Hope you have a wonderful day. XO

    1. Jo(e), they get kind of wonky from their own weight...probably a good things, so they can't be rolled away. :) Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  5. Isn't that something? It must be a real job to move them...I wonder if they enter them in contests?

    1. Linda, I would love to know where those pumpkins were headed. I know the person was serious about them, because we have seen them covered up in the heat of the day. I bet they are in a contest. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

    1. Hi Elzie, Glad you stopped by. Yes, those are some wonderful pumpkins. I think they are surely going to enter them in a contest. I am not sure if the flavor is there in such huge veggies. The water melons were enormous too. Blessings for a great weekend at your house, xoxo,Susie

    1. Hi June, I was just amazed at those pumpkins. You can see they have to be lifted with straps and a block and tackle...too heavy for a person to do it. :) I am going to try to talk to the people who grew them one day. Hope you and your family are doing well. We are so into autumn ...I hate to loose this lovely days...not a fan of winter any more. I am sure that comes with age. :) Blessings , xoxo,Susie
      p.s. big hugs for Landon.

    1. Kimberly, I kind of thought the same thing...could they be made into pies...or would they have any flavor from being so big. LOL Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  10. Wow, I haven't seen any this big before that I know of. My daddy used to grow big ones but nothing like this... I bet they'd make a lot of pies. Hugs, xo

    1. Susie, The vines from this patch of pumpkins was fascinating in itself. I have been wondering if they are good to eat because of the size. I am going to look that up. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  11. You don't see that kind of stuff around here though some people have decorated their front yards for Halloween, featuring zombies, and ghosts etc.

    1. Boston Boy, I am not a fan of scary Halloween stuff. My cousin used to go all out. I just like a jack-o-lantern and maybe a trick-or-treater or two. LOL. We rarely ever have kids come out here to the country for treats. I looked up "growing giant pumpkins in Indiana" One fellows largest was 1300 pounds and the smallest was 700.. That's a lot of pumpkin. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

    1. Cindy, Look up "growing giant pumpkins in Indiana" they have lots of info about them. You need a good size plot, and I am sure you have that. That would be fun. The newspaper would probably come out and do an article on it too. Hope you have a great weekend, xoxo,Susie

  13. Wow Susie, those are Huge! Do they just use them for decoration? I can't imagine what they weigh, impressive!! I heard there is a shortage of canned pumpkin this year, those could make a lot of cans! Have a wonderful weekend, Cindy

    1. Cindy, That's sad about maybe not having enough pumpkins for holiday season. I looked up "growing giant pumpkins in Indiana" lots of people do it for contests, to see who grows the largest. One fellow said his pumpkins can grow 25 pounds a day...wow. Have a blessed weekend, xoxo,Susie

  14. OH MY GOODNESS, LOOK AT THE SIZE OF THOSE PUMPKINS! That white one is wonderful. I wish I had that for my front porch hahaha. wow, they look three times the size as the watermelons.

    I admire people who grow seasonal pumpkins. It must be such fun to watch them grow. And yes, a lot of work, but look at what they get in the end!

    love, ~Sheri

    1. Sheri, I am catching up my replies. This is from when it was the big pumpkins. You have to have a big spot for those pumpkins. I wonder if they won a contest with them. I may one day be brave enough to stop and ask. LOL> Bless you, xoxo,Susie
