  1. I’m amazed by the incredible variety in this display, so interesting!

      They do grow an amazing variety of squash!

    Such a terrific colourful variety Jude..I love the Turk’s Turban!

    1. Heyjude says:

      They are fabulous aren’t they? Don’t see them for sale though so I guess you have to grow your own.

  3. Sue says:

    Fabulous variety!

    1. Heyjude says:

      Indeed. I wish I could grow just one!

      1. Sue says:

        Really? For the look of it, or to eat – pumpkin soup, perhaps?

        1. Heyjude says:

          To eat 🙂 Not a pumpkin, but one of the squashes – I adore butternut squash and gem squash.

        2. Sue says:

          Ah, I am partial to Butternut Squash

    What a wonderful display.

    Both the look and colour of autumn at its best 🙂

    1. Heyjude says:

      Sooo many pumpkins and squashes and I bet most get uneaten!

      1. Joanne Sisco says:

        That was my thought too. Not many people actually pay pumpkins to eat. Sad really. It actually becomes a waste of agricultural space.

        1. Joanne Sisco says:

          Let’s try this again …. BUY pumpkins to eat, not pay them. Sheesh. I shouldn’t comment before my morning coffee is finished 😏

    I have never even seen half of these before. So colourful.
    Best wishes, Pete. x

      Not the choice you find in the supermarket!

      1. It depends on which supermarket in which country. Many of the ones in your photograph were for sale in various stores in Austin leading up to Halloween.

        1. Heyjude says:

          We’d probably have to go to a farm store here.

    I have a little row of butternuts sitting in the conservatory, love them in soup, veggie stew, risotto of jollof rice 🙂 I hope these get eaten!

    1. Heyjude says:

      You grew them? I failed miserably last year trying to grown courgettes so didn’t bother this year at all. They do use a lot of their produce in the cafe on site, so I imagine some of these will get eaten eventually. Hope so! Although saying that, the garden is closed now, so maybe the cafe is too 😦

    These pumpkins look so festive. I guess some would be called squash?

    1. Heyjude says:

      They would. I don’t buy pumpkins now as they are too big, but I do love squash. A shame they don’t sell more varieties in the supermarkets.

      1. Robyn Haynes says:

        I love to buy a whole pumpkin at the farmers’ market. I love it weightiness and promise of soup and roasts. I usually have to cut it up to share though. I would use only about one eight of the whole

    50 shades of 🎃 pumpkins!
