This fall we’ve made a hearty soup from our pumpkins. LikeLiked by 1 person Yes pumpkins make a wonderful soup, when I started growing my own pumpkins without chemical fertilizer they tasted more delicious. Fall, spring and the other seasons must be nice to experience. because I live in the topics the seasons are not distinguished. I grow a variety but peas, beans, green leafy vegetables, sweet potatoes, pumpkin, coco, dasheen, breadfruit, ackee, coconut are my most stable crops. LikeLike I think organic foods are more delicious too. Seasons have their charm, but I do envy your growing season! I had to look up dasheen and ackee. Interesting to hear about what grows well in your tropical climate. LikeLiked by 1 person Hi there, I hope all is well.
