Looks delicious, JanaLyn. I'm not a fan of the commercial pumpkin spice flavor that's made its way into just about everything this time of year, but I love pumpkin soup, pumpkin pie, and roasted pumpkin seeds.

What a delightful tour of your garden.  It is so beautiful, even at the end of season.  And the pumpkins! I love pumpkin everything. You had great blessings come out of the law of the harvest.

Oh Jana! I LOVE the deep orange and reddish pumpkins!

We didn't get any of those color this year, but we DID go to a local corn maze and pumpkin patch that was MASSIVE--over 50 varieties of pumpkins! And picked out this beauty:
(Note: it's hard to tell from the pic, but it's about 22 inches tall. And forgive the mess on the floor. :P )

Jana, thanks for letting us see! (I wasn't sure of the range of pumpkins & what kind of weather agrees with them, & now I have a better idea).

Dyany, what a monster! I had to keep shrinking the image to finally see the whole thing!

As for pumpkin delicacies, I can take them or leave them, but I usually partake of at least a little something in honor of the season. (Halloween is also something I can take or leave, leaning toward leave, but Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday).

Come on in, Punkin. She has been out enjoying the garden. I keep hearing that cats & dogs are colorblind, but Punkin seems to favor pumpkins, & she also likes apricots & tangerines. And she is partial to skunks & raccoons because her little pal Ivie is a tuxedo cat.  ::)  No, Punkin, we are not getting an Appaloosa horse.

Forgive the monster photo before; I didn't have time to resize it. I shrunk and reposted; hopefully that helps.

I should also mention that that pumpkin weighs about 45 lbs.

Yes, our pumpkin was 21 or 22 Kilos so about 45 pounds as well.  We have two more pumpkins to freeze. The one yielded 36 cups or so if nice pulp cooked.

That is from one itty bitty plant. 4 humongous fruit.
