heirloom pumpkins

This is not a comprehensive blog post on heirloom pumpkins and how to garden them..i simply support the economy and buy them from fruit stands

but i do just adore how unique and special they are…especially featured atop vintage silver!

I didn’t buy anything (hardly;) at Round Top this year but did stock up on pumpkins on my way back home the other night..there are great places for these pumpkins both in Brenham and Hempstead.

{my recent “harvest”}

I don’t even know if white ghost pumpkins are considered heirloom but i love them too..this is from Meg Duerkson.

I don’t really do spooky decor but this dog is too cute and i love how there are just a few heirloom pumpkins mixed in with regular ol grocery store value pumpkins…heirloom pumpkins can be PRICEY so you can get the look but just adding a few..

  3. Love the fairytale pumpkins! They have a lot of them at Whole Foods. Once it cools off, I hope to go get some.
    Great post! As always!

  4. As the owner of an independent garden center, I would like to say Thank You for promoting us and our wares!!! Come get your heirloom pumpkins and gourds and remember to SHOP LOCAL!

  5. Holly,
    FYI they have those velvet pumpkins at Laurie’s antiques on FM 2920 in Tomball and they are very reasonably priced. The small ones are like which are about four-6 inches are only $6.00. The larger ones are less than $20.00. I know that is probably much cheaper than Leftovers which is a great place to look but so pricey. Laurie’s is an awesome store, if you have never been, check it out. I think you would like it.

  6. Fabulous Pictures Holly and looks like you got quite a hull of simply gorgeous pumpkins!!! Hope you don’t mind if I share this post with my readers on Thyme Square Garden’s FB page You know how much I adore pumpkins 😉
