Well okay Cinderella I am not but pumpkins there are, AND lots of them.
I finally got a day at home that was dry enough to pick them!! What's even better than that is the fact that they got a frost on them last week, so this should ensure they have a good shelf life.
I haven't planted any Pumpkin, Luffa, or Gourd seeds in years. Every year they just seem to self sow themselves and there they are back again the next year. This spring I will be planting some pumpkin seeds though as I would like some different varieties.
Last night we had yummy Pumpkin Soup for dinner. The soup my family like best is when I make it with Coconut Cream and Red Curry Paste. We also had homemade Garlic Bread to accompany. I had made quite alot of Garlic Bread a few weeks ago and frozen it. Even better than our homemade Pumpkin Soup & Garlic Bread was my families company at the table and last night believe me they were in fine form. I think they are very very excited with the School Hols starting tomorrow and the fact that we may be in for a visit from Soldier Boy sometime next week. YIPPEEE!!!
