The Pumpkins Are Ready!

I'm following the tendrils

to the pumpkin patch!
It's time
They're ready!
Bright and Round
Orange and Gold
I already bought a few pie pumpkins!
They're outside with "Little Maria"

Let's see...
What other pumpkins will I find at the farmer's house?

...there are the small ones...
{2 to 5 pounds}

Baby Bear
Baby Pam
Small Sugar
Sugar Treat
Winter Luxury
...And the middle size ones...
{8 to 15 pounds}

Autumn Gold
Funny Face
Harvest Moon
Long Island Cheese
Lumina (white skin)
Young's Beauty
and the pretty Cinderella 
...the bigger ones...
{15 to 25 pounds}
Big Autumn
Big Tom
Connecticut Field
Ghost Rider
Happy Jack
Howden Field
Jumpin' Jack
Magic Lantern PMR
Pankow's Field
...and the JUMBO ones...
 {50 to 100 pounds}
Atlantic Giant 
(This variety holds the worlds record for the heaviest pumpkin: 1,689 pounds, grown by Joe Jutras)
Big Max
Big Moon
Mammoth Gold

I know I'll find some beauties!
They're just down the road
and around the corner
at the farmer's house!

Happy Harvest Time to You All!

Wishing you JOY and Pumpkin Size- Smiles!

No Fall without pumpkins! Wish you could go down the street, around the corner and get a glimpse of these orange beauties. To be honest, I do not decorate those outside my house but I'm planning to make some soup, or better, try to make some soup. Perhaps this year.
Much love for the rest of the week, sweet friend xoxoxo

And late at night, the Great Pumpkin descended from the sky...

Really love the pumpkin field shot--we used to grow little eating pumpkins--better than squash when baked.
