The Mystery Pumpkin Man

       A few blocks away, there is this little house. It is very small, and the paint is peeling badly.

But this little house has a HUGE secret. Let me take you around the alley to the back yard. In this back yard, the man has a pumpkin patch. Yes, that's right, in his tiny back yard. Not only that, the pumpkins are HUGE! For some reason, he ties the smaller ones up on telephone poles. The big ones stay on the ground. 



Usually he brings them all around front and piles them up. But this year he only has this huge one in the front yard. Plus a small one in a chair. I do not know how he gets them around the house! Here is the one he has carried around this week. So that is the story of our mystery Pumpkin Man!



“Then God said, “I’ve given you every sort of seed-bearing plant on Earth And every kind of fruit-bearing tree, given them to you for food. To all animals and all birds, everything that moves and breathes, I give whatever grows out of the ground for food.”

Genesis

You share the best stories and mysteries with us. I am sure he had to have help with that huge pumpkin. At least, it keeps him occupied raising them. Everyone needs to be more active in one way or other.

That's actually a very pretty house and the garden looks beautiful. If the mystery pumpkin man paints the house, it'll look really nice for sure!
The pumpkin is HUGE! I wonder how he grows it so big. Must be magic by pumpkin man.. The pumpking in the chair is very cute :-)

No kidding! What amazing and huge pumpkins! I like the fact that he ties up the smaller ones. That's a cute idea.

LC said...

That pumpkin is huge. And the color of the tree is striking, too, as is your gorgepus header photo,

Ruth Kelly said...

I always wonder how they get them to grow so big. That tree with it's brilliant color next to the house is gorgeous.

Lady Jane said...

Such a neat story Ginny. Do you know him to talk to? We now need to know how those huge pumpkins get out front. Love your stories.

That is a really cute little house although a touch of paint wouldn't hurt. The bright red leaves are gorgeous. That is one big pumpkin out front!
