Pumpkins are an Autumn Imperative. Before the Return of the Small People to my house, I had given up decorating for the fall holidays, but pumpkins were still necessary items for the kitchen.
Now, we have to have both. Obviously. And since we grew no pumpkins in our garden this year, it was time to go Support Our Local Farmers and buy a few.
I wasn’t the only one who had a tough year for winter squash.
The limited selection didn’t bother the kiddoes…they went right to work.
Some worked a little harder than others…
Not that one, Little Man.
Angel’s got a good one!
(Ok, not really…it’s pretty ugly to tell the truth. But I let her bring it home…)
There ya’ go, Niko!
Ok. The gourds can come, too…
