Pumpkins Galore!

Pumpkins for breakfast
Pumpkins at noon
                                                                   Were it not for pumpkin
                                                                     We'd all be undoon.

An early American colony rhyme, indicating how dependant the colonists were on pumpkin.  Many times they would eat it three meals a day.

I don't know why I love pumpkins.  Maybe it's because they are so low maintenance.  To me they are the symbol of a plentiful harvest and autumn.  Above is Youngest Daughter with the 3 big max pumpkins.

These are the heirloom variety Amish Sugar Pie that I got from Baker Creek Heirlooms.  They are small and sweet and used for making pies.

These are the Connecticut Field Variety that can be used both as a carving pumpkin or for eating.

These are the Big Max pumpkins and I'm told they arn't good for eating.
