All about pumpkins
It is not enough to say that we have a variety of pumpkins to choose from. There are huge pumpkins up to 20 feet long… and then there are small pumpkins, colorful pumpkins, classic white and orange pumpkins, and almost everything in between.
Of course, you get it. I think this is what makes them so interesting-they are seasonal treasures, and it is easy to customize the look and style you want to add to your home.
Here are some trivia tidbits that can impress your friends and family on the way to the pumpkin patch this year!
- Pumpkins are a type of squash (cucurbitaceae), which makes them a fruit…not a vegetable!
- In the centuries before the arrival of the pilgrims, the indigenous peoples of the United States cultivated (and consumed) pumpkins.
- Illinois is the state that produces the most pumpkins, harvesting more than 12,000 acres of pumpkins each year. In fact, the pumpkin capital of the world is located in Morton, Illinois.
- The largest pumpkin ever recorded in Germany in 2016 weighed 2,624.6 pounds.
How to make your pumpkin decoration last longer
Just as we love them, so do squirrels-at least in the Midwest! Between the heat and our furry little friends, pumpkins are not always as long as we thought.
At the bottom of this article, you will find the source of my favorite artificial pumpkin this season. However, we also buy fresh ones every year-the pumpkin field tour is like that!
Here are some ways to make your fresh pumpkin decoration last longer:
- Clean the surface of the pumpkin (and the inside after carving) with a mixture of bleach: One teaspoon of bleach plus one quart of water. This can disinfect your pumpkin and eliminate any bacteria. We like to use spray bottles to ensure that we reach the entire exterior.
- If you want to avoid bleaching, you can also try vinegar! Spray (or brush) vinegar and lemon juice on the pumpkin. Try using 1/4 cup of white vinegar, a tablespoon of lemon juice, and a quart of water as solutions, and then soak the pumpkin in various bathtubs. Note: I think this is not as effective as bleach, but it is worth a try!
I hope these pumpkin decoration tips are helpful-this is a summary of my favorite ways to use them at home (and outdoors)!
