Pumpkins have been popping up in our local market and at a few farms in our area too. It seems a bit early for pumpkins though. It was 83° ( F) today with a low warm breeze. I sound like a meteorologist ( wink). Have you seen the new pumpkin colors? Pretty dusty blue and dusty pink colors that almost look like chalk paint has been perfectly applied.
Last year I looked high and low for boo pumpkins. The little white ones are really called boo pumpkins. I used them in a variety of ways. Ideally I’d like to find some of these little boos and add some pink and blue ones too.
I had some fun taking photo’s of this dusty blue beauty.
Do you grow pumpkins? I’d love to know if the blue ones need any special attention. Their skin seems a bit softer than a typical orange jack o lantern style pumpkin. I might scoop out and dry some blue seeds for next year.
Thank you for reading my ramblings about my dusty blue pumpkin.
I hope to see you back here tomorrow night for the Thursday Favorite Things link party ( early birds can start linking at 7pm ( MST). Please invite your bloggy friends to join in the fun. I noticed last week that we didn’t have as many participating. I hope you are not tired of sharing at the Thursday Favorite Things Link Party.
