Pumpkin Update

02 November 2012

Since everyone is giving their favorite pumpkin recipes right now, I am reminded that I never gave you the follow up on our pumpkin patch this year... 

Brace yourself.  It is not good news.  Sadly, the pumpkin patch was laid to rest back in September.  We buried it in the backyard. Okay, sorry for that last bit.  It is very late at night as I type and my humor tends toward the uber-silly when we get past my bedtime.

But so sad about the pumpkins, right?  We were beyond bummed.  What started out with so much promise...


Don't worry, we thinned them, as recommended.
Was growing and giving us so much hope...


And then the bugs, or the amount of water, or the heat, or all of it.  We really just don't know. 

So while we hoped for a crop of these beauties...


We will instead be cooking, and baking, and pumpkin-smoothie making with this guy...

 
I know you are bummed, but take heart.  When you are tasting this....

It doesn't much matter where the pumpkin came from.
 
Cheers!
