Today is National Pumpkin Day and in case you didn’t realize it, I’m really into Halloween so today is pretty special to me.
So let’s talk Pumpkins!
First off, on this special day I want to take the time to celebrate Maverick.
Maverick is a 2,560 pumpkin from Minnesota grown by Travis Gienger, a horticulture teacher.Mr. Gienger drove Maverick all the way to San Franciso, California and in a field of giant pumpkins, Maverick bested them all.
Next up- meet my warty Pumpkin.
He was pretty special- this photo is from Halloween of 2012, and at that time Warty Pumpkins weren’t a thing. So in addition to being pretty unique, I didn’t have to carve him because he was perfect the way he was:
To wind things up here I went in search of a picture of the ” Weirdest Halloween Pumpkin 2021″ and I was both amused and entertained. And just when I had found what I thought was a truly strange and weird pumpkin I saw this and it became my favorite.
It became my favorite because of the dog’s reaction to the pumpkin:
So I hope you are enjoying National Pumpkin day ( more then that dog did anyway) , it only comes once a year you know!
