Pumpkins ... we may never be satisfied again

We have a ward member friend who works for the state extension office.  This fall he told us to bring our truck to one of his fields and load up on the pumpkin varieties he grew.  He had literally sowed seeds of dozens of different kinds of gourds and pumpkins and grew them all in this one field.  We loaded up on Cinderella pumpkins, goose neck gourds, tiny yellow, orange and green gourds, and then regular pumpkins.  We had such a bounty in our truck that I knew it was the last of me being satisfied with the variety typically found in the grocery store.  Our porch never looked so good this fall!
The kids each got a couple of pumpkins to carve and placed all the little gourds along our porch railing.
