After the first frost, it is time to pick up the pumpkins around these parts. So one afternoon we rugged up, took the wheel barrow down to the patch and started collecting them up. It didn’t take long to fill up the barrow, and we still had oodles of pumpkins left.
In the end we piled them all up on the ground, and Country Boy hitched the trailer up to the ute, and took it down. We now have a trailer load of pumpkins sitting in the shed. Ironically, Country Boy doesn’t like pumpkin.
Before we even started picking the big pumpkins, we already had a whole box of little nugget pumpkins sitting there, waiting to be used. So I just cut them in half, scooped out the seeds and roasted them skin and all. Once they were roasted I then scooped the flesh out and chopped it.
1 small knob ginger

1kg pumpkin flesh – dice into cubes and roast in the oven until tender.
2 green apples – peeled, cored, and diced

I’ve got a trailer load of pumpkins to get rid of this year. Suggestions please! Go!!!
