Now it is just something I can't get excited about and the telly is crap

And the hopes of a new different year have never materialised

I will celebrate cyber C***** with everybody else

Miss Becks

Flo, you ride a bike whilst playing piano? Cool!

Aaw Geoff, didn't mean to make you feel bad. Sorry. And I know what you mean when you say ' hopes of a new different year have never materialised '! LOL But I keep going anyways!

As a compromise can we not mention C******until 1st November-do you think we can ask for special C******smilies?

Miss Becks

Yep, I can go with that. I can just imagine the smilies with little santa hats on.

The haunted house one is cute!!

Jean, I love that - I shall try to create something like that with my Halloween pumpkin! One of my pumpkins must have cross-pollenated with another squash as I have a mottled green pumpkin - it looks rather lovely. And for those of you who remember what happened last year, thankfully this one is growing on the plot!

I agree, lets not mention C******* until after Halloween.

I've never grown a pumpkin. I don't know what they taste like. They don't really look very appetizing - just lots of pithy stuff. Looks rather like marrow.

I've heard the phrase 'pumpkin pie', but have no idea what it is. Pastry with pumpkin filling?

Or do people just buy them to carve the pretty faces.

Gary you are missing out, roasted pumpkin is yummy as is pumpkin soup, I have never had pumpkin pie but have not had good reports.

I think that is it Gary they are just grown for decorating or for giant veg competitions -probably taste like marrow which tastes pretty horrible

Haha Kate !  Can't stand marrow but don't mind corgettes. Think they are from the same family aren't they ?

Never tasted pumkin either Gary but I love watermelon. Haven't a clue if they are related.

Geoff I cannot believe that Mrs Geoff would cook horrible marrow? I think some of these foods need the correct cooking, thin slices of courgette in garlic oil are yummy but chunks boiled are horrible.

FloBear

Jean, I'm the same - hate marrow, don't mind courgettes. I've had pumpkin pie once - over-rated I thought. Isn't pumpkin a bit like Butternut squash - or am I just thinking of the colour?

Gary Hobson

My parents used to grow marrows a lot. They can be quite nice with pepper on them, soft and juicy, .

Am looking for a way to sample pumpkin cybernetically.

Maybe Nigellissma could knock up something devilish with a pumpkin, with chocolate, cream and spirits. (Alcoholic spirits, not the other kind).
