I've never been to a pumpkin patch...but have seen amazing photos on internet! This year, I sort of ventured into planting a few extra pumpkin varieties. And this is my pathetic pumpkin patch....Nah, you're not really impressed, are you?!
The pumpkins are not as big as I had last year :( A few other variety sown never came up either. I can't tell what the reason behind it either! ...but, this year I had butternut squash and some miniature pumpkins for a change.

This decorative mushroom-looking pumpkins are gifts from our village neighbour. I will plant this for next year...because it is so pretty! Don't you think so?
It's also my first time to grow butternut squash. These will be enough to put a variety of veggie dish meal for us for the duration of winter season. It would be nice to have pumpkin soup during the very cold days to come.
My other variety is the local pumpkin...it can grow quite big but it didn't this year. Pumpkin stew is delicious and nobody can say no to pumpkin pie either. Isn't pumpkin such a versatile veggie as it can turn into a savoury dish or a sweet dessert?
Pumpkins can be stored for a good couple of months...Do you store and keep them whilst it's in abundance for later consumption?
