I happened into Whole Foods sometime in mid-October and what should I see, but acres of stunning non-standard pumpkins. There were Cinderella pumpkins, and Fairytale pumpkins (maybe they were the same), white pumpkins, and green pumpkins, but the very best ones were the Rascal Pumpkins. I picked out the best Rascal.
The best feature of the best Rascal was the great stem and curlicue.

I'm thankful for you Rascal Pumpkin, you looked cool and your sweet meat will be soup and bread and muffins and maybe even a pie. I've saved a few seeds and maybe I'll grow you a cousin next year.
p.s. the Rascal Pumpkin is very very tasty.
