"I would rather sit on a pumpkin, and have it all to myself, than be crowded on a velvet cushion."-Henry David Thoreau
Each weekend, I make pumpkin bread muffins for our church to sell during the annual Pumpkin Patch. The house smells so wonderful while baking that we have to snag a few for ourselves...
the piano pumpkin patch is over growing it's space.....
Forget beans, I think pumpkins are the most magical of fruit (or veg). Think of all the things you can do with them:
carve them for Halloween
scoop the flesh and use it in recipes
use the shell as a tureen
make them into candle holders or other decoration
and in fairy tales, they were turned into houses and carriages!
Which is exactly why I made one for my YOE tree. (The stem was a cast off from a jack be little pumpkin at the pumpkin patch. I snatched it up for this project.)
a little dust of glitter makes even this humble little pumpkin look special.
