Our efforts

This is our winking Jack

And an attempt at something slightly more ferocious!!!
We are now up to our armpits with pumpkin flesh. I have roasted the seeds, turned half the flesh into soup for the next six years and the rest will become pumpkin pie eventually!! Apparantly the Native Americans used to dry the skin and weave it into mats, but I have offered the old Jack o'Lanterns to my sister to use as a portable potty for the car, which she refused, so I think I will just have to let them go at this point. But this is truly a veg of little waste!

My word, I am looking forward to my Christmas dinner of Pumpkin, followed by Pumpkin and Christmas pudding made with -- Pumpkin??
