These are what we picked so far, there are three or four more to pick. I was so excited when they started to come in. We never could get pumpkins to grow before. They just took over a spot near the pond, not even where I planted them. We think the birds or another animal picked up the seeds and move them.

Thanks guys, they are much bigger than they look in the picture. I should have put something next to them to compare size. They were too heavy for me to carry, except for the whiter ones.

Hi Karen, those are some pretty Pumpkins you grew. Are you going to make your own Homemade Pumpkin Pie. My Mom use to do that, it tastes sooo much better than the store bought kind. HUgs, Debbie

Not sure about that yet, they say there is some other squash that is better for pies, maybe Pattit will tell us.

You are right, these are NOT the kind to make pies with. These are better for carving. The best ones to use for pies are sugar pumpkins. I tried one time to make them out of the jack o lantern kind it was awful, stringy, watery, I ended up tossing it.
