30 Degree Difference

The weather for the wedding we attended on Sunday was a sunny beautiful 85 degrees.  In fact, I actually came back with a slight sunburn.  Today it was 49 degrees, windy and cold.  What a difference three days can make here in the south.  

In this weather, the pumpkin plant has given up all hope of growing or producing a pumpkin before Halloween.  Why, did I think it would grow and produce a pumpkin in only 45 days?  Because that is what the package said.  I guess they meant a minimum of 45 days before anything happened?  Next year, the pumpkins will be planted early in the spring.  My plant still looks like this:

Pretty sad sight!
