The days are distinctly shorter. I almost need to put on the lights in the morning. But there are a few good things about this.
Soup, soup and more soup. Ok, we can also mash it and bake it.
Just up the road from us is this stall.
Basically you pick up what you want and pop the money in the mail box. Each pumpkin has a sticker on it describing its type and giving the price.
There are also some hand written notes about the best way to use the pumpkins. For example, baked, in soup, it has a very creamy texture, a nutty flavour and so on. Some even have wacky faces on them.
These ones need a quick trip to the dentist! There is a huge variety of shapes and sizes.
Its only for a few weeks each year, but I am glad they take the time to make this a just a bit more special than most road side stalls.
