I rushed down to the annual Fall Plant sale Saturday at Mississippi State University. I heard they had white pumpkins, which I need to complete my table scape for the fall season.
The horticulture kids were proud of those white pumpkins which were selling for $15 a piece~!
To heck with that. I drove out to Wally World and purchased four orange pumpkins at $3.88 a piece and sprayed them white. I taped up the stem so it would remain dark.
For the cost of a $1 can of spray paint form Fred’s I figure I saved $25 bucks.
I did buy a half dozen starts of Swiss Chard which will not only look beautiful in the fall garden, but is edible as well.
I don’t know if I like Swiss Chard because I’ve never tasted it. But we’ll be eating it on Thanksgiving Day. Anyone know how to cook it?
