The not so green pumpkin = #5

#5. We inherited two pumpkins this year from the generous woman across the apartment complex who moved out.

Carved those babies up and visited the pumpkin patch because our happy soon-to-be 2-year-old HAD to learn about pumpkins.

(Which she continued to call pumpkin patch for the remainder of the holidays. I just couldn’t correct her, it was too cute. “No honey. That’s a pumpkin. Not a pumpkin patch.”)

It was too big to fit in the freezer experiment.

And so once it started to go and its face showed slight signs of mold and caved in, it ended up in the trash. 😦

Next year—when we’re set up in the house. When we aren’t in transition. Next year when we’re settled….

Cooked the seeds and placed them in a container that used to hold something else. Lost two pounds eating those as a snack with water. Ha!IMG_6255

We sure did enjoy those crazy pumpkins though. And the holidays glowed bright orange this year.

  1. what fun, she is really enjoying herself…and pumpkin seeds do make a lovely necklace when dried as well as a snack

  2. I went on a pumpkin seed binge over the fall. I wish they sold them all year round!
    Love seeing that you’re back online. I’ve missed seeing your voice.

Tell me what you think. I don't get to answer comments like I did before baby but I read every single comment. And they really make my day!
