Good morning all Lots of chatting in the dorm after lights out!!! We're getting very international aren't we
I expect Fairy has set off on her walk by now - have a good day Fairy
Pumpkin not a huge part of the UK diet Pat ... well, not until Hallowe'en when the shops are full of them and then we're all swapping recipes for things to do with the flesh after we've helped children to hollow them out to decorate the front porch etc.
They are grown more and more here, and on our way to visit OH's mum we cross The Fens and there's an area where there are acres and acres of pumpkins - they look marvellous as they ripen in the autumn sunlight.
We are getting into smaller squashes tho, the farm shop sells lots of summer squashes and then the harder skinned winter ones that store well are becoming more popular. I usually buy a few choice ones and store them in the garage to use in the winter.
