I was out back and noticed this pumpkin on my plant that lasted the heat and drought. It was kind of hidden under some leaves of the plant and the wheelbarrow. It's a ghost pumpkin (i believe that is the name) and that kind of makes me happy. I had tried to get these to grow before, but only the orange ones would grow, so this is nice. Inside they look just like the other pumpkins, but have a white or bluish skin. I'm curious how many are going to be good from this plant, but this is the first one i have seen. It's about the size of two fists held together. Not very big yet, but it did surprise me.
