Love them! It's great they turned orange, for you!Ooojen - those gourds are beautiful! I never knew there was such a variety of types and colors available.
Kdestra - I love your corn stalk pumpkin! It looks awesome all lit up.
Two of the three pumpkins actually turned orange after I harvested them. I know my 3 is nothing compared to all you experienced pumpkin growers, but these are the biggest I've ever grown. I did get 5 last year but they were all small and only one ever turned orange. My husband likes to joke that all the time and expense to grow 3 pumpkins doesn't really amount to much when I could buy 3 big ones at the store for a lot less 😆 but I think it's worth it.
Yeah, you could go buy some...but it feels good and they mean more when you know you grew them, yourself! I always end up having to go to a pumpkin farm or such to get big carving pumpkins, as I have no room to grow any that big, but I love to have minis, pies, gourds, ect that I grew myself!
