Question 3 of Cups & the Pumpkin

I was hoping someone may know what the pumpkin symbolises in the 3 of Cups? As it is in the foreground of the card it obviously has some significance. The only meaning I could find was on a Pagan site that said it represents the Sun & personal power. All help much appreciated.
