Pumpkin Pie on the Fourth of July!

Glory be, it's gettin' hot out there!  I walked out to the field garden to check on the watermelons to see if we might have one ready for the Fourth.
They're close, but not quite ripe.  
However, I did find something else that may be ready for the Fourth.
Big yellow-orange pumpkins!
 Seems these guys want to join in on the celebration!
We haven't ever had much luck growing pumpkins, and I don't know a lot about them, but aren't they supposed to be ready in October?
The watermelons and cantaloupes are coming along, but these orange melons have them beat.

Oh well, we'll have pumpkin pie on the Fourth of July and maybe we'll carve a watermelon for Halloween.
Just thought I'd throw in a picture of 'Ol Blue.  She's having a little rest while my husband repairs the engine.
