I cut open a homegrown butternut pumpkin on the weekend, it was so bright orange inside. The photos don't show the intensity of the colour. We only got about 3 pumpkins off the vine, and this one was the best size, the other 2 are much smaller. It didn't get much water over the summer, but I saved some rinse water buckets for the vine once it was setting fruit, because it was looking promising. I think it's the first successful pumpkin growing season I've had, even though the yield was small. I had better luck with a cold climate tolerant sweet potato, so I'll grow more of those next summer.
