This is our latest batch of pumpkins. I thought that they were early this year, as I always seem to associate pumpkins with pumpkin soup and winter.
However my husband informs me this is not the case. I must have a bad memory as apparently we have had more than one crop a year in the past. These little beauties are a nice size, one a little scarred on top (probably from the mower) but will be nicely shared amongst our neighbours on either side of us and ourselves.
Maybe not the right time for pumpkin soup just yet, but I have made a nice pumpkin risotto in the past, and pumpkin cake. Not so good on the pumpkin scones!
Thought I would include my red plate in amongst them, as there were several nice comments about it on an earlier post. Plus it looked nice against my new kitchen tiles.
These are probably the prettiest ones. .... as if looks count for much right?!
Thanks for all the comments lately and hello to new followers! I'm really chuffed to have you here. For those who completed my little survey (sounding really official here) I'll run it through the machine and report back later.
Keep the comments coming to be in the draw for the giveaway!!
Thoughts and prayers to all in Japan. It is extremely difficult to comprehend the magnitude of it all.
