Pumpkins don’t usually grow on trees, but that’s exactly where a New Jersey family found one this weekend.
The Phillips family in White Township found the 10-pound orange object hanging on a vine from a tree in their backyard.
Last spring, 5-year-old Joseph Phillips’s mom told him there was no room in the garden for pumpkins so he threw some seeds in a wooded area of the yard.
The family spotted the pumpkin hanging 4 feet off the ground. The vines had attached to a nearby tree. With Halloween around the corner, the pumpkin may seemed destined to become a jack-o-lantern. But the boy’s mom, Kathleen Phillips, said she hopes it will last until Thanksgiving.
