I used a variety of pumpkins and gourds on my front steps.  I love the variety of color.  I learned a trick from one of my pumpkin-farmer clients, that will help protect pumpkins through the fall season.  

TIP: Spray the outside of the pumpkin with acrylic, you can find at any craft store, like Hobby Lobby.  But be careful not to spray the stem or the very bottom of the pumpkin stem, which is how they breath.  

This will help your fall pumpkin display look its best all season long!  Be sure to visit your local farms and nurseries to pick your pumpkins and plants!
