Every year I get asked how I paint my pumpkins. And what the exact color is that I use.

Do they not know me? I’m entirely too lazy to paint a pumpkin especially when they already come in so many beautiful colors.

Our local side of the road stand sells so many beautiful shades of pumpkins and gourds and I think the quirkier (I especially love quirky stems) the better. If you can’t find the color pumpkin you want, by all means paint them but don’t underestimate you local market, you might save yourself the trouble!

Pumpkins: Uncomplified. No Painting Necessary.
