Pumpkin Pie and Pumpkins

All the pumpkins were grown in my yard. The green ones (ghost pumpkins) we discovered on the roof of the house! All the green/white pumpkin grew up, up, up on vines.

 

Pumpkin etymology:

"1640s, alteration of pumpion "melon, pumpkin" (1540s), from M.Fr. pompon, from L. peponem (nom. pepo) "melon," from Gk. pepon "melon," probably originally "cooked by the sun, ripe," from peptein "to cook."
