The versatile pumpkin, received from my neighbour Virginia;
Pumpkins look beautiful, they lend themselves for decoration until the time comes to use them for cooking.
They grow in many colours, sizes and forms.
What do you fancy tonight?
A deliciously roasted pumpkin, skin and all?
A fine tasting pumpkin soup in the french style or perhaps with a hint of cumin and ginger?
Not to forget a creamy pumpkin risotto with a handful of true parmigiano reggiano?
For dessert a luscious pumpkin pie, sweet with a hint of spices and lashings of cream?
any of these and 101 more to use a pumpkin.
The time is here to scatter different pumpkin seeds. I let them grow and spread downwards where nothing comes into their way as they need a lot of space to grow.
Applause for the humble pumpkin.
