The Fletcher Pumpkin Project

We took a huge pumpkin donated for the front door of the school at Thanksgiving and let it rest in the leaf pile. Over the next several months, we watched and celebrated it's passage into compost. We did get a few scraggly vines that produced one grapefruit sized pumpkin the next season from this leaf pile.
