While I am not a huge fan of the cooler weather (give me 85 degrees all year around, please!), I do love the fall colors!
Along with all the beautiful fall colors come pumpkins!
As a child, I lived by an apple orchard; each fall, they had THE BEST pumpkins to choose from. My sisters and I would walk through the vines debating which pumpkin would be perfect to carve! At the time, I didn't know there were many different varieties of pumpkins!
In spring 2022, we planted cooking pumpkins and Jack-O-Lanterns here at Books By The Bushel.
We documented and posted pictures and information on our website as they grew.
Last fall, we carved our Jack-o-lantern pumpkin and canned our cooking pumpkins. Yum!
And a few of our feathered friends enjoyed a yummy pumpkin meal!
