My Farmhouse Front Porch Decorated For Fall With Homegrown Pumpkins From My Garden

Many of you know that we live in the south. I grew up in New England, so I’m used to a cold fall season, and long bitter winters. When I grew my Pumpkin Patch, I knew that I wanted them to last for both October and November. This resulted in me planting them in July & harvesting the final batch last week. I’ve hoarded most of the harvested ones indoors to keep them from rotting in the humid Carolina weather. Now that it’s the end of October, things are cooling down and I finally was able to put some of my pumpkins out on my porch. So without further adieu, here’s my farmhouse front porch decorated for fall with homegrown pumpkins from my garden!

When we decided to buy this fixer upper of ours, I could just see us decorating this farmhouse front porch for fall and christmas.

So call me a weirdo, but I had planned out a pumpkin patch garden several years ago, and now I finally have a yard and front porch to make that dream come true.

Some day I even want to grow my own christmas trees. Is that strange?

I can’t believe how blessed we are in this season of our life. I am very thankful for where our love story has taken us, and for the little feet that get to run and play in this front yard of ours.

I rarely share photos of the exterior of our house, but it’s looking so cute right now that I can’t resist!

This adorable doormat can be found HERE, btw.

It’s so fun because cars slow down on our street to see all the pumpkins. They are so unique & different than the normal round orange ones (which I love too, btw!) Don’t tell Silas, but I’m starting to have dreams of having a “real” pumpkin patch some day!

One thing I love about our house is that it’s in a neighborhood, but the lots are huge, and spread out so you still get some privacy.

This is a coffee sipping porch now. I just want the weekend to come already so I can unwind out here and have some quiet time.

I’m not so much of a “spooky” fall decor person (but I love me some trick or treats!) so I really wanted to focus on natural wood elements like these crate planters I made & let nature do the talking.

Another reason I wanted to grow a pumpkin patch this year was so that I could share them with my neighbors. And as funny as this may sound- you would think that would be easy considering how many I harvested. But you kinda get attatched to all of them when you grow them from seed… not to mention all the hand watering in the humid heat all summer long. Haha!

But seriously, if we hadn’t been hit by Hurricane Florence, I would have probably had a crop 2x the size. Which would have made it easier to “share” more… But all the baby pumpkins that were on the vine during the storm didn’t make it.

So next year I am planning on starting a month or so earlier to give the vines enough time to produce and let all the pumpkins ripen.

    I love the variety in your pumpkins. Seriously your house could be featured on HGTV.
