It’s that time of year again. I just love to grow pumpkins. They’re so interesting. All the different shapes, colours and different knobbly bits to look at. They’re amazing. This year I grew Turks Turban pumpkins and I have just brought in the last of them. Some of them haven’t reached full size so I will probably use them for decoration if they don’t change colour in the next few weeks.
As per the suggestion on Gardener’s World last week (Toby is doing well in my opinion) I made sure to leave an inch or so of stem on either side of the stalk so that the smaller pumpkins could carry on maturing once they had been cut. We’ll see if that makes any difference.
I’m not going to waste these on Halloween lanterns – no way! (I bought a cheap one from the supermarket for that). No, these will either be Pumpkin soup (with funky bowls to boot!) or else Pumpkin Pie for our small and first ever Thanksgiving celebration in a few weeks.
