Monster Plant

We have this pumpkin plant that Tom got from Lowe's one day and we thought we would just try it out. This sucker has taken on a life of its own-really. This thing has grown so fast we are not sure what to do. We have finally put it outside and hope that bugs don't kill it off. This pumpkin plant has now(as seen in Picture #2) started wrapping itself around the blinds and the string to the blinds. We have never really gardened and so we are trying to start out slowly and teach ourselves how its done. But if everything grew like this plant we would have no problems. I have had a couple of gardens but none have been too successful. So we are trying.

Bumped into this blog randomly. You could plant that pumpkin in the ground, choose a sheltered sunny spot, and by October, you'll have several lovely pumpkins! good luck!
