We got only ONE pumpkin on ONE vine this year, and no zucchini-- what kind of a garden?? and just a couple acorn squash. It’s better than no pumpkins like we had last year despite my best efforts :-)
I remember a few years ago, a pumpkin plant tried to take over the entire back yard, producing vines miles long with dozens of lil' punkins. I thinned off all but four or five of them and then only ended up making pies out of one.
So just ONE is a perfect harvest for me 🙂
While dealing with this hard-shelled repository of pie filling, I couldn't stop thinking of an illustration I recalled from childhood, from an old fairy-tale book.
These things generally make better pies than they do modes of transportation.
Pies are in the oven right now and starting to smell goooood!
