Where’s the orange?

Remember back when white pumpkins were the cutting edge? Back when you had never even heard of a white or green or yellow striped pumpkin? When orange pumpkins reined supreme? Not so any longer.

So I’m exaggerating a little. Imagine that. The old orange globe is still the most popular color for pumpkins, but you must admit there are a lot of alternatives out there now. Suddenly the landscape is white and green and yellow as far as the eye can see. Hold on to your carving knife. Here’s a post filled with “alternative” pumpkins.

How do you like these yellow striped pumpkins? Cheerful, aren’t they?

White pumpkins are beautiful in a rustic setting.

How about these miniature striped green-and-yellow pumpkins? Yes, they’re pumpkins.

    I’m so ashamed. My pumpkin this year is a plastic one with a lightbulb inside that you plug in. Sad. So sad.

      Pam,
      You make me laugh. Pumpkin shame! Ha!
      I hope it’s orange? I have to admit that I still love the orange ones best. I actually have a huge one this year, but only because my father insisted that my husband plant some old pumpkin seeds he found in a medicine bottle in the freezer last spring. I have no idea how old the seeds were, but they turned into a fairly decent pumpkin patch. I wish I could give you one.
