What a warty pumpkin

I found this great warty pumpkin to join the others on the front step.  Hubby is worried they are breeding!

    1. No, we are not carvers, so I like to get odd shaped ones instead! xx

  4. I love that kind of pumpkin and I don't see them very often. They make a festive display at your house. :)

    1. I've been looking for one for a couple of weeks, but no luck, then on Friday, I saw a whole load of them, so I had to snap one up! Glad that you think they look festive. xx

  5. I planted a couple of pumpkin plants for my granddaughter this year and the only pumpkin I grew was no bigger than a tennis ball but very knobbly like yours. I think it had been attacked by something.It does look weird.

    1. I think there are some varieties that grow like this, there are some that have warts that look like peanuts in the husks (the monkey nut sort if you know what I mean). You should save the seeds from yours and see if you can get some more warty ones next year!

  7. Ha! That is awesome! I was just over at Karen's blog Beatrice Euphemie and she had a warty gourd!!! So cool! I think that is a fun addition to the traditional pumpkins!

  9. Glad that you are feeling chirpier! That is a radical looking pumpkin - love it! I so wish we had proper seasons here (it seems like we just have an endless summer with a couple of less hot days sometime between June and July). Not that I am complaining - SA weather is great - just missing out on all the lovely seasonal thingies the bloggers in the Northern Half get up to!

  10. I wonder if it's the variety which makes it warty. It's a great one for Halloween. Are you going to eat them all after the 31st?

    1. I think that it might be the variety, but I don't know enough to say for sure, some come with amazing warts in America! xx

  11. That is a very warty pumpkin! You've reminded me that I need to buy a couple. It's nice to have a display on the door step. Will you carve them? x

    1. No, we are not carvers, that is why I like the odd ones like warty! Hope you find some good ones. xx

  12. We have a pumpkin in the allotment that needs bringing in, but at the moment we're staying cosy and warm indoors except for taking and picking up young grandson from his sports activities. Your warty pumpkin is rather splendid.

    1. I reckon that staying inside if you don't have to go out is the best plan today! Hope that your pumpkin is doing well. xx

  13. I saw a few pumpkins yesterday at Cockington Country Park and they had been decorated in one of the artists studios.

  14. I love these pumpkins! I also love the squished ones... the short fatties they call Princess Pumpkins here. They come in the most beautiful autumn colors - deep reds, rich oranges and bright yellows, sometimes one pumpkin has all these colors. Good choice!
