Fall is here, and we’re ready for pumpkin everything! It’s the perfect time to indulge in pumpkin pies,
cookies, coffee, cheesecake, pasta, roasted seeds, and oatmeal.
On October 26, we celebrate our favorite spooky and silly decoration and food: the pumpkin! Is there anything pumpkins can’t do?
White pumpkins are the newest fad in pumpkin fashion in the U.S. They are great for carving and painting due to their bright, white canvas-like skin. Pumpkins grow in many colors ranging from the classic bright orange, to yellow, brown, green, grey and white.
