I ordered several different kinds from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds and they arrived in the mail today. I love ordering things on-line. Ordering gardening and farming stuff reminds me of a song we learned in high school chorus, The Wells Fargo Wagon
I tried to choose pumpkins that would look good together if they are used for decoration.
pronounced "Gal-OH deh-ZINE"
Salmon peach colored skin, covered with warts.
"Flat White Boer"
This is a pure white pumpkin, but shows yellow in my lighting.
"Winter Squash Iran"
Foam green, mottled in soft peachy-orange.
Is it a bad sign that they don't actually have a picture of the pumpkin and someone had to draw it for the package?
"Marina di Chioggia"
Pronounced "ma-REE-na dee kee-OH-ja"
Deep blue green and warty.
And the seed company threw this in as a freebie. The package says it's a summer squash to be harvested all summer long. So, I guess I'll give it a try, too.
I'm hoping to have enough to sell at our local farmer's market that is open on Saturdays.
