My First Fall Pumpkin
My pumpkin growing outside of the fence was a total failure. Flop City. And all of the other little maybe they will grow up to be big pumpkins failed to live longer than a few days, too.
With one exception.
This little beauty. Who is growing on the inside of the fence AND on ground level! In the perfect spot where she won't get stepped on or bothered. Until a few days ago, she was still all white. And then I noticed, she is finally getting some color to her. I can't wait to see what her final look will be. I believe she will be a pale, creamy sort of orangey-pink. Not your typical bright orange.
But no matter what, I think I can semi-securely say I am growing my first pumpkin! Woot, woot! Life really is about the little things, isn't it?!
Have you ever grown a pumpkin? And if so, do you have any experience with the heirloom varieties? Outside of pie and bread, do you have a favorite pumpkin recipe?
