This is the easiest (and prettiest) way to know that Fall is here. It’s the appearance of pumpkins and gourds almost everywhere you look. From pumpkin patches, to pumpkin and gourd decorations on doorsteps of homes across the state and even in the aisles of our local supermarket, seeing pumpkins and gourds is one of my favorite Fall reminders.
I’m always amazed at the colors that pumpkins and gourds come in at the patches we go to find and buy them. There are the traditional orange pumpkins and green gourds, but there are also ones in ivory, yellow and variegated to name a few. The odder the color, the more I like it! Are you seeing pumpkins and gourds everywhere you look in your community?
What a cool idea. I like buying the edible ones. They last forever and are good decoration.
That sounds great too. Do you ever boil them and make homemade pies? I’ve heard they are smelly when boiling, but great when eating.
All I have seen are some huge pumpkins.
This must be the year for huge pumpkins. I like them though. Should always have a pumpkin at this time of year.
