Land of Plenty -----MyWorld Tuesday

This picture reminds me that we are indeed living in a land of plenty. I don't know what this farmer was planning on doing with all of these pumpkins, but now it's too late. Frost has killed the vines, and they will rot in the fields. Another sign of the changing seasons.

  1. If the farmer is not going to use the pumpkins why did he plant them? Can they be used for cattle or hog feed?

  2. That does indeed look like a land of plenty. Pumpkins and squashes speak of harvest and abundance. Sorry to hear they will be going to waste.

  3. Great shot. If the pumpkins are left to rot, I wonder if the seed will remain viable and volunteer pumpkins will pop up next year.

  4. Certainly does look like a land of plenty, that's for sure, but how sad that they go to waste. I wonder like Carver if the seeds will remain viable for next year. Terrific, colorful photo!

    Have a great week!

  5. They make for a good photo but I agree, it seems they could be used for animal feed. Even if left to rot, though, it should make for better soil.

  9. There has been a field like that near a golf course I play at. For two years now the pumpkins have just been left in the field. I tried to find out what was going on but didn't have any luck

  12. An over-abundance, that's for sure! Your photo says fall - too bad the frost got them. It would be interesting to know the story behind the photo - why?

  15. Pumpkins could be fed to cattle, however, in this area of southern Michigan most of the cattle have disappeared. Pumpkins would probably upset their digestive system - so it probably isn't a good idea. Yes, the seeds can start growing again next spring. In this area there are a lot of truck farms, and field laborers are used to pull weeds. I would guess that would happen in this field if it is planted to another crop.
