This Winter.....

.......we are going to be eating pumpkin.

This is about one third of what grew here this year. We saved and planted the jap seeds, the golden nuggets and Queensland blue varieties are ferals, ie. popped up out of the compost.


  1. Love golden nuggets - they are delicious stuffed with other vegies in a cheese sauce and baked.

  2. Some yummy pumpkin soup coming up I'll bet, great crop Julie.
    Oh, I love the old seat too, very nice..

  3. Pumpkin soup, scones, ice-cream, muffins, I can see you will be googling for pumpking recipes to use them all up. Yum.

  4. Mmmmmm yum. We LOVE pumpkin here at our house - well most of us, the 3 yr old is yet to be convinced.
    Roast pumpkin risotto, pumpkin canneloni, Roast pumpkin & lentil soup. Yum yum yum!
    Wish I had your garden.
    Hope you market went well the other weekend.

  5. Pumpkin is my favourite food (close second is corn). I just made a double batch of pumpkin soup yesterday, sadly, not from our pumkins.
    Well done on the bumper feral crop.

  6. Yummy! Stuffed with corn and covered with love it. Also covered with brown sugar and a tiny piece of butter, then grilled in the oven....mmmmm
    No vegie patch here.....

  7. I also like pumpkin soup... it's fun to see that you have autumn. In Germany it is springtime, and we are waiting for summer :o)
