My First Pumpkin

I bought my first pumpkin of the season yesterday.


It's all downhill from here. I have a slight addiction to pumpkins and once I get that first one, I keep wanting more and more. Pretty soon I'll look like Linus sitting in the pumpkin patch.

This one is only about 5 inches tall. I think you call it a pie pumpkin, although around here pumpkin pie comes out of a can.  Who am I kidding, it comes out of a box in the frozen foods section of the grocery store. I'm no Anthony Bourdain (Am I the only one who finds that man incredibly sexy in a sloppy, rough around the edges kind of way?).

Well, I think my son is officially over this cold/flu/crud that he's had, so we should be back to normal around here. If I could just find some wood to knock on, I'd be all set.

  2. Love that cute little pumpkin! I'm no Betty Crocker either. If it comes in a box or frozen, then I'm good. LOL!!! Glad your son is feeling much better! Have a great weekend!

  3. So glad your son is better! You know pumpkin bread is delicious--and using real pumpkin is a must. Pumpkin pie with fresh pumpkin is also so delicious compared to that canned stuff. We are all Martha Stewart wannabees...aren't we? (or you could just get one at a good bakery and pretend...)

  8. I see a nice piece of weathered wood right under that perfect specimen of a pumpkin. Give it a good knock!

    p.s. The snow is falling on the pumpkins right now up here in northern MN. Brrrrrr.

  11. Your pumpkin displayed with the pots you made for the hens and chicks and other succulents is so bright and pretty. I think your perky is back. I tend to use faux pumpkins, but real ones are so much prettier. I'm glad your son is feeling better.

  13. Their brilliant orange color strikes chords in the hearts of even the most hardened "I hate that summer's over" people. Who doesn't love a pumpkin?

  14. I had to Google his name to see who you were talking about...that's how out of the loop I am!
    It does not feel like fall at all out here (Wyoming) but there is a freeze warning back in Minnesota. I haven't even seen a pumpkin for sale here yet either!

  15. I picked up a few mini pumpkins but no bigger ones yet. I hope to hit the market this week. All the pumpkins on porches have inspired me to mix things up on my own porch! Sometimes the squirrels start gnawing on them though and they don't last long. Have fun decorating...Happy Sunday!
