Large things from the garden

With the sad failure of our tomatoes this year, we placed all our garden hope in winter squash. We harvested today and weren't disappointed. We've got enough acorns, carnival and butternuts to keep us in squash soup or squash risotto though the winter.
We've also got enough pumpkins to bury ourselves in pumpkin bread, pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin gruyere gratin, pumpkin jam, pumpkin pie and pumpkin shrimp (?) until.....forever.
This is the haul after we gave away 5 large pumpkins!

Our coreopsis did really well too.

  1. Niiice pumpkins, man.

    I assume the coreopsis is for dying with?

  2. I may try dying with the coreopsis. I've been collecting the flowers all summer and storing them in my freezer. It's not dyers coreopsis though, so I'm not sure what I'll get... Have you dyed with it?

  3. which one is mine? MOM B

  4. Please send a pumpkin my way. We planted some in our backyard garden but the squirrels have destroyed them and we have high doses of lead. Stupid city living. Starbucks pumpkin scone it is!

  5. pumpkins: sweet AND a gorgeous colour. That picture just makes me want to knit a weird orang hat!
