The "warty" one is perhaps a little less attractive than the others, I feel!
I like the warty one…and the one of the bottom seems like a cross between a pumpkin and butternut squash? How wonderful 🙂
The seed catalog said the warts form because of the high level of sugar in the pumpkin. I am looking forward to cooking with the warty ones. The variety is Galeux D'Eysines.
Bottom one is a small Long Island Cheese.
A lovely Autumn scene. I love the colours and smell of Chrysanthemums, it heralds the change of season.Marian (LondonUK)
Those pumpkins look so very perfect for the halloweens! Not that they look scary but the color is just bursting!
I nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award !
Wow! Thanks Dawn!
Now that is something I used to love to see when I visited the USA. It never gets done here! shame!
I think the best is the traditional orange pumpkin. Love the pictures of Skippy.
Do critters not nibble on those?
Yes they do! I brought in two un-nibbled ones a couple days ago – the warty one and the LI Cheese are un-nibbled and I look forward to cooking with these. Maybe a Thanksgiving soup.
The critters (mostly squirrels) will have fun finishing off the two orange ones. They usually eat them pretty much gone before the frost hits.
