I grew Rouge Vif D’Etampes (aka: "Cinderella") French heirloom pumpkins the first time both for Halloween and for fall squash dishes (pie!). Here are my notes.
I'm not a detective, but I think those seeds from last year's perfect pumpkin may have cross-bred with another squash. Green Jack O' Lanterns for Halloween.
The Halloween decorations from the front yard sitting around on the bench waiting to go back into storage. I wonder what they're talking about.
Happy Halloween everyone! If you're going to a party tonight, don't end up like this guy. Cleanup is rough.
