    A pumpkin says it all about October.
    (Even though I have nothing to do with Halloween.)
    Best wishes, Pete.

      No, Halloween is not on my radar too. Fortunately there is no trick and treat here.

    Ah, I love pumpkins. But to eat, not to carve faces on.

    1. Heyjude says:

      It’s been a while since I carved a pumpkin. but I always used the flesh to make a pumpkin pie.

        I’ve never ‘got’ pumpkin pie. I prefer a soup or a curry. But there are better, tastier pumpkins than the Jack o’Lantern, and we don’t seem to sell them much here.

  3. Like Margaret, we love our pumpkins cooked – delicious. They are so versatile. A big Queensland blue pumpkin makes the best soup. (blue skin, not blue inside)

      Blue skin? Weird! No autumn leaves yet then, Jude?

      1. Heyjude says:

        Not yet Jo. We don’t have many trees in this part of Cornwall, the closest woodland is still green. Some of the NT gardens have trees from the US which will be turning.

      I don’t think I have bought an actual pumpkin since my kids were young. I always used the flesh to make soup or pumpkin pie.

    These pumpkins make a great picture.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Seen in an NT garden. Sadly not mine.

  6. Ah, delicious pumpkins (rich in Vitamins A, B & C), we love to put these in a dish! Somehow, on appearance, ours don’t look as nice as yours, but I suppose it’s the taste that matters!

    1. Heyjude says:

      Unfortunately this isn’t actually mine, but it was the biggest one growing in the garden we visited last week. I tend to buy and eat butternut squash.

  7. That is the prettiest pumpkin!

let's have a conversation...
