Are You Ready, Pumpkin Eaters?

I like autumn holidays, especially when pumpkins are involved. This year’s pumpkin vines have produced the most calabazas ever. I credit the abundance to Eagle’s weeding and watering the vegetables this summer.

      1. They’re our favorite holidays here as well. Great food, cooler weather, getting the family together.. and you don’t have to worry about the stress of gifts just yet.

  1. Ahhh my sad pumpkins all got devoured this year by some critters. I had a ton of them growing but unfortunately they didn’t last. Maybe next year I’ll put them in our greenhouse when it’s built 🤪. I did buy some though! I’m waiting in line as we speak to pick Nikolai up from school so we can run home and get to carving 🔪 🎃

      1. They were a present from my mom, from the Gsrdeners catalogue. Gave me something to harvest this year; saved from the rabbits and squirrels. How did your pumpkin carving go? Will you share photos?


  2. We grow Butternut Squash rather than pumpkins (we prefer the taste). But this years harvest i England is very poor. Our squashes are less than half their normal size, despite copious watering. The soil is just so dry – it was baked by unprecedented 42C (108F) temperatures.
