Pumpkins, Squash, & Gourdes! Oh my!

So while visiting the fruit stand this weekend, I learned some interesting facts about the pumpkin. I was able to talk to a sweet employee there that was an absolute joy to be around (her name happened to be Joy..she does live up to her name!) I couldn't write quick enough, on my post it note, all the interesting information she was loading me down with. Yes, I am one of those note takers. I have to write things down to the last detail if I plan on remembering it even 5 minutes later... I keep saying I'm going to start taking those
vitamins that help with memory.
I just keep forgetting to follow through with that too. =/

This is my pumpkin showing off a knotted pumpkin
he picked out. =)

I forgot to mention that I lost the Post-It. There's no other place I would've put it besides my purse so it had to have grown legs and walked off while I was sleeping! I'll try to remember as much as I can...
They call these white pumpkins Cotton Candy.

This gourde was the biggest one they had in the whole place.

Joy also called these Cinderella pumpkins... these were my favorites.

Taking a break with his first glass bottle of Coke. What a great experience!

This is a peanut pumpkin... they plant the peanuts and pumpkins close causing them to grow together.

We also learned that the pumpkin is a type of squash and it's a fruit.
I always thought that squashes were vegetables!


  1. My goodness, your little man is so big! Seriously, where has the time gone.

    This was pretty interesting, but peanut pumpkin looks like a brain!


Thank you so much for your sweet comment! I can't wait to read it! :0)
