The Runaway Pumpkin

I previously showed a picture of our accidental Pumpkin Patch. Well in hauling up the plants that had no pumpkins I found one vine that had gone through the fence.
Our runaway pumpkinAs I tried to pull it through I realized we had another pumpkin. This one had been growing just on the neighbours side of the fence. Here I had thought that we had all those plants an only one pumpkin.

Of course by now I had chopped the vine out of the ground so the pumpkin was done growing. I brought it in to show off. It sat around for a day until it fell off the table and broke into a dozen pieces.

Now I know why it was trying to sneak out of our yard! It had feared for its safety.
