Three little pumpkins in a row

Posted on Updated on

The first three pumpkins, in decreasing size

Now that the holiday season has passed, it’s probably time I got back into the blogging. Let’s kick things off with our first three pumpkins out of the garden.

Our small variety have gone great, with three more pumpkins on the way. Our large pumpkin plants seem more intent on taking over the world than producing edible bounty.

Following instructions I read somewhere, I’m drying out the pumpkins for a week, and then putting them under the house where it’s cool and dry. Apparently leaving on some of the stalk improves their shelf life.

(And yes, the third pumpkin is tiny. For some reason it decided to stop growing at that point, and waste-not-want-not…)

    Good looking pumpkins! You could use the little one to serve soup made from its friends.
    Or if I’ve completely misunderstood the scale of this photo, as a garnish.
