GOBLINS AND PUMPKINS BY THE ROAD – Marilyn Armstrong

September 25, 2019 – PUNKINS!

Pumpkins are no longer just big, orange globes that either become the pie or the jack o’lantern. There are white ones and Goblinesque round ones, tall ones, and thin long ones and sugar pumpkins (for pie baking).

This farm had them all … and some really impressive tomatoes which I’d have bought but my stomach does not like tomatoes anymore. So I gave up buying even the best looking bunch of tomatoes. But I admire them anyway.

Follow the orange and white sign

Pick your favorite

Carve this one into something special

There’s something for every taste

You have to love the colors

  1. My Mom would let us pick out a few gourds when we did our annual pumpkin buying, and I’d always plant some of the seeds from the gourds the next year. If you want something that will utterly take over your yard, plant some type of gourd….

  2. This is absolutely the best display of magnifient and wildly varied pumpkins. I have noted this morning – Pumpkin – for flower deco….. We celebrate, in our church in France, a sort of Thanksgiving on the first Sunday of October and I want to use a hollowed-out pumpkin as a ‘vessel’ for a flower bouquet. I still have some roses, hydrangeas, ivy and other blooms and I shall buy some autumnal flowers to add, then all of it goes into the empty ‘vase’. Looks gorgeous and festive. I think I even still have some frozen pumpkin soup of last year. You get so much out of it from just one ‘fruit’.

  4. Aren’t these beautiful photos! Yes, autumn is upon us, the leaves are beginning to turn. It is one of my favourite seasons (I know I say that about each one) but the change that comes with each season can bring such beauty. Fall though, is spectacular with the changing colours and for some, a respite from unbearable heat. This year, we moved from summer into fall nearly without notice as the temperatures gradually dropped. Time will tell what the rest of the fall will bring.

  5. What I’m wondering is – are those white pumpkins white inside and what do they taste like?

    • Some of the white ones are sugar pumpkin and make white pumpkin pie. White pumpkin pie? Yup. MOST of the sugar pumpkins are orange and rather small. The bigger the pumkin, the less tasty it is, or so I’m told. I buy the canned pumpkin. That’s a lot of effort for one pie!

      • I buy the old fashioned orange pumpkin and peel and cut it up after Halloween. It cooks up nicely and I freeze it. Halloween is after our Thanksgiving so I use the frozen pumpkin from the previous year to make the pie for our Thanksgiving dinner. Can you believe it, our Thanksgiving is in two weeks.

  6. Love seeing your pumpkin pictures. We have nothing like it here, just one or two in an Autumn setting in the store. We just do not celebrate pumpkin time in Switzerland. They have something mysterious.
