Heirloom pumpkin varieties for fall
We are completely obsessed with pumpkins and winter squash this time of year. Who isn’t?! There are so many gorgeous shapes and sizes and subtle color differences. It takes loads of restraint to resist filling our houses with them in the fall.
On our way home from Palm Springs last week (we’ll be sharing more of this event later!), we stopped by the best pumpkin patch in Southern California and scooped up a bunch of our favorites to share with you.
You can find lots of these at your local patch or even Trader Joe’s. For those of you in the LA area, we can’t recommend the Pumpkin Patch at Live Oak Canyon enough! On top of the amazing varieties of pumpkins they sell (and there are at least 50), their farm is full of activities for kids. Free during the week, $3 admission on the weekend.
And if you’re handy in the kitchen, don’t throw them out. They are as delicious as they are beautiful.
