All Kinds of Pumpkins


One might hear the word "pumpkin" and immediately think of a big, round orange one.

But there are so many different kinds of pumpkins that it's absolutely amazing.

While  at  a Whitney's Farm Stand  in Cheshire, Massachusetts, the other day,  I took photos for today's post.

Seeing the white pumpkins made me think of how popular they are in decorating. 


 They are kind of like "ghostly" pumpkins but they don't appeal to me. (Anemic pumpkins? uh uh)

The flat, squat ones are unique.


 Did you know there are even pink pumpkins?  Uh huh. Whitney's has them for sale.


As for me, give me good old-fashioned orange ones, thank you.


Also shown are just some of the gorgeous mums for sale at the farm stand.

Hello from Spain: I like traditional, the orange. I am very classical. Keep in touch

Wonderful selection of pumpkins, Susan! Many farmers in our area have lost their pumpkin crop due to our excessive rainfall this season. I prefer the large, orange ones for October/Halloween decorating, though I'm told they are not the best for making pies, etc.

I usually like the orange pumpkins, as they say harvest to me. However, as October arrives and then Halloween, I like to see the "ghostly" white ones appear. whooooooo!

I like the white ones somewhat. I like the Cinderella's. But orange is over all favorite!
