It's true, I collect them. :D
It's the same thing every year, I bought them because I think they look so cute, and after some weeks I have so many and don't know what to do with them. :p

I agree, those mini pumpkins are so cute! And they last a really long time too. Well, it looks like you have a real cutie there who will at least nibble on them!

Ohhh I never thought of giving mine a mini pumpkin! We have so many varieties in the supermarket and I always think that they look so cute! I know what I'm getting tomorrow!

That is really cute! I hope the birds are enjoying destroying them :D

I have always been told that decorative gourds are poisonous. ---but I have recently learnt that it isn't true! They can be very bitter tasting apparently which may be why my mother told me they are poisonous. :confused:

We usually buy some pumpkins every Halloween and throw out the dead ones in what would be our garden area. They usually self seed and we get a small pumpkin patch every year. We had one tiny vine by the gate in the car port but no pumpkins and it died off. Maybe next summer we'll have better luck as we'll buy more and keep them till bad and toss out there again. Nerd loved the raw seeds, Lurch loved them and Dobby probably will once he actually tries them.

I had heard the same thing. I don't know why that rumor started but it survive all the way to Sweden. :D
Some are dry and some don't taste so good, but they all have a lot of seeds inside that taste delicious. :)
And you can first use them as decorations for months and they are pretty cheap.

Two new today :rolleyes: that I know taste really good. :) The one to the left is a spaghetti pumpkin.
