Peter, Peter, Pumpkin Eater... ...

I found all these adorable pumpkins 
for $3.50 each and wanted to buy up every single one...
then...
I thought about our Texas days of 90 degrees and thought,
"wait...if I buy them NOW, they will be rotten by Thanksgiving.."

So I googled 
and it seems to be an easy task to make them last longer...

My favorite pumpkin in the whole world...
CINDERELLA  pumpkins...


Aren't they beauties...!


 If a pumpkin is minus it's majestic stem,
I pass it by and move on in search of the strong, large stems...


...washed, dried and sprayed with bleach cleaner..
You can prolong the life of these beauties by following these
PUMPKIN SAVER RULES...
(i think i am repeating myself here..)


What fun to have such gorgeous pumpkins...
the white one looks almost ceramic, it's so pretty...
a little closer to Halloween, I will pick up a few
ORANGE ones....
the great-grands love the BRIGHTNESS of the orange ones, I think.


Once these babies dry for 10 days,
I will rub them with clear, AS wax and they are going to look like
MOVIE  STARS...
and we'll be lining up to get
their AUTOGRAPHS.....



Our garden is still producing the BEST tomatoes..
so sweet and full of flavor.


We've been having the best, fresh salads..

I love the canned fried onion rings on mine sometimes,
instead of croutons...
have you tried them ??
