Saturday Snapshot - Welcome to Fall !!!
Sitting on the terrace wall are a row of pretty little pumpkins! Volunteers, all, they sprung from seeds that were pitched in the compost last fall ... delicata squash seeds, butternut squash seeds, pumpkin seeds, acorn squash seeds that made their way through the winter in the soil and came up in the lower garden when SB spread the composted soil in the spring. Some look to be lovely sugar pumpkins and some look to be delicata/pumpkin hybrids! Interesting, to say the least!
They are destined to be 'vases' for a church supper ... carved out, filled with small plastic cups of water and filled with chrysanthemum blossoms, they will be lovely little harvest home bouquets ... and then, I plan to cook the orange ones up to pulp for pies and stuffed raviolis, and roast the delicata pumpkins with a pork roast! Double duty for these pumpkins! It's the Yankee way!
