More than one way to skin a pumpkin

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?
