Pumpkin Planter

Last fall I took a large pumpkin and cleaned it out, filled it with potting soil and put a mum plant in it. I used it as a decoration on my front porch. At the end of the season I took the mum/pumpkin and planted it in the ground. That mum came up great this year. I guess the pumpkin acted as good mulch for the mum.


This fall I'm going to get a few different sized mums and pumpkins and decorate my porch and yard.

Since it's coming up for Halloween, I thought after making my soup I'd put my pumpkin to good use. With some of my summer plants gone, I think this adds a bit of colour.

That's 3 weeks and the pumpkin planter is still going strong, we have had very cold and wet weather with wind, rain, sleet and hail too. It will rot eventually though (10/31/2008)
