    I have one of the pumpkins in the photo- the pale orange with the bumps on it. I had never seen this variety before. Would I just cook it and use the pumpkin pulp for breads, pies, etc.. or do I cook it like a squash.

    Also have a HUGE squash – beautiful pale blue green color. Had never seen any of these in our stores before.

    Forgot, I also got a squash that is bright green , speckled with white that is shaped like a huge apple. Can’t wait to try that one. Youth at church were selling pumpkins and gourds as a fundraiser.

    Hello Gigi

    Thank you for your positive comments. Glad you enjoy the photos since we love taking them because we are blessed that we are surrounded by so much beauty.

    When the pumpkins were but a wee thing, my brother Justin scratched the words ‘GROW THE FUTURE’ on one and “HOMEGROWN REVOLUTION’ on the other.

    Happy Thanksgiving.

    Gourgeous calabaza’s :). Squash comes in so many beautiful varieties. I just recently tried sweet Delicata from Wild Oats & hope saved seeds will come up this 2008.

    You are blessed w/ a cornucopia of beauty & harvest. A blessed Thanksgiving to you & all in our blessed nation our forefathers worked hard to build & we must be smarter to nuture.

    Hello- Saw your picture of the fava beans you have growing. What is your experience with the yield these give? Also- what’s your plant spacing on the favas?
