This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. But Skippy always stood by me and was a great friend. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps and garden with me. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees and berry bushes, chickens and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

halloween pumpkins

halloween pumpkins 031

My mom has been asking me what to do with pumpkins. I like to keep them out for decoration until Halloween and then start cooking with them. Pumpkin bread and pumpkin soup are my favorites.

Don't forget pumpkin ravioli and pumpkin gnocchi! Both are fantastic with a browned butter sage sauce.

Have not tried pumpkin soup but I want to. Pumpkin pie gets most of our pumpkin and pumpkin bread when I have too much. Must try the soup though...

I love pumpkin; I make lots pumpkin muffins (spiced, mixed with apples, chocolate pumpkin spice, etc), custards (welll, sort of custard. it's pumpkin and eggs and sugar and spices, but no dairy), and i love to cube a few quarts' worth, freeze it on trays, then store in big canning jars to add to quick soups, stirfries, pilafs, etc.
