Burning Bush, White pumpkin, Kale

I'm having a little love affair with the white pumpkin I got Sunday, and had a little photo shoot with it, around the yard and with some very fetching kale from the garden. I don't know what it is about white pumpkins, but dang, I think they're just about the prettiest things out there. I'm a sucker for any pumpkin in general. I grew a couple tiny ones successfully last year, had two that looked great this year, but something tragic happened and they rotted on the vine. (*sniff sniff*)

The book The Compleate Squash, by Amy Goldman, has such amazing pictures of the crazy and wonderful varieties out there. If only they weren't such touchy little things to grow, I think I might become way more obsessed with them.

I too have been loving the white pumpkins! Haven't bought one yet though, but what is it about them?
