It’s the most wonderful timeeeeeee of the yearrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!
No, not Christmas but FALL! Fall is my favorite time of year and gifts of fall are my favorite, namely, pumpkins! I don’t know when I turned into an upper-middle class housewife but I love decorating with pumpkins, bonus points if they are edible.
In this picture, from top to bottom, is a Hubbard squash, Cinderella pumpkin, and a cheese pumpkin. Next to that pyramid are 3 crook neck pumpkins. I yanked the last Hubbard squash available before Brad’s closed for the season. I’m super excited to cut into it; I hear it’s an amazing pumpkin for cooking.
The great thing about pumpkins, and winter squash in general, is that they will last through the cold winters until the first spring vegetables start to sprout. Store them in a cool basement or room and they will provide you with a cheap, vegetable alternative to the expensive vegetables in the grocery.
Mmmm, the things I have planned for these pumpkins. Roasted and curries and pies, oh my!
