Autumn must be coming, because here come our Pumpkins


This biggie is the first.  Isn't he a giant!

Pumpkins will keep for all winter in a cool place.  Wash the skins with a very diluted bleach mix (1litre H20 and 1t bleach) to kill any moulds or whatnot that may be parked on the outside.  Let dry, then put on a shelf in a cool place.  They do not deteriorate at all, and make wonderful eating during the winter months.

I haven't counted how many we have outside, but there must be more than a dozen, all looking gorgeous.
