Crop Circles

Yessirree Folks, Crop Circles have appeared !! Right here in little ol' Mena, Arkansas!!
There are five of them in my Pumpkin Patch!

My Husband salvaged quite a few cinder blocks from the Masonic Lodge Building after the tornado and we thought they would be a good way of keeping the armadillos (yes, we have them here in the WildWoods!) from rooting around where the pumpkins have been planted. We formed circles and I filled the circles with compost.

The Pumpkin Plants do appear to be happy - they have started blooming but no signs of pumpkinage yet. But I have a feeling it won't be long!

The Pumpkins in the center Crop Circle are Sugar Pumpkins. The seeds were given to me by a good friend ~ AwtemNymf. Thank you so much!

I'll be sure to let everyone know as soon as we have Babies!

Haha, love the crop circles! Wow, armadillos? I'd never thunk it! I must see a picture of them!

Oooh, pumpkins--I have envy--I could never grow those in my shallow city plot!

Zan, It's hard to get good pics of armadillos. They are nocturnal creatures. And I bet you could grow a pumpkin vine or two - they don't seem to have that deep a root system.
