Need Pumpkins?

Are you shopping for some pumpkins? If so, do I ever have a selection for you and for anyone driving into or through Dripping.










I did not know that pumpkins came in so many different colors. Before the season is over, I just might try making some pumpkin butter. :D

Until next time, God bless.

Wow, Lynn! Now that thar is some Texas punkins, as they say in your part of the country. I love looking at all of the different shapes and sizes. Are they all edible? I'm probably not heading down to Dripping any time soon, but I sure am enjoying the pumpkins virtually! Thanks for the fun post.

Very nice photos. The shapes and colors are so unusual. It would be fun to decorate with all those.

Oh my, I didn't know either! The rounded ones are very popular here. BTW what is the difference between a pumpkin and squash?

AL, squash tastes like a veggie whereas pumpkins are used in a pie with cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. I don't think I've ever seen a pumpkin any other way except as a butter similar to apple butter.

DJan, the display surprised me. Maybe I just noticed it because I'm always looking for something to blog about. :D

Rae, I saw a white pumpkin for the first time about 3-4 weeks ago. This selection is quite something, isn't it?

I love all the different colors and shapes. A pile of them would look spectacular on my front porch!

That is a lot of pumpkins, and I am totally amazed at all the shapes and colors. Is it just me or do there seem to be more of the unusual ones, like the white, this year? Maybe I'm just paying more attention.

Great photos Lynn, that was fun to see.

How lovely! We just finished up a big batch of winter squash soup this week. I love the fall displays every year.
