10 lb Blue Lakota pumpkin harvested from my plot yesterday ... baking in the oven today.

......................................................................................................

baked ...






......

So far it has made two meals for 2 people of pumpkin soup ... and 4 loafs of pumpkin bread.   Left in the fridge is a jar of pumpkin puree and a bage of it in the freezer. 

But not the best tasting pumpkin in the world.   I'm looking forward to the little sugar pumpkins.

......................................

I think the final tally is going to be 9 pumpkins

here are the last 6 harvested

here it is baked and ready to puree.

It has slowly dawned on me that, for most reasonable applications, distribution of a pumpkin in its natural packaging is almost certainly the most efficient and safe.   Pressure canning the puree, me thinks, is best done locally ... er, in your own oven. 

... or, of course, you can always just grab a can of something off the shelf in Fred Meyer to make your morsels.

Medium sized pumpkin going in the oven at 325 degrees today.  Most likely for pumpkin bread and soup ... and maybe a pie.


Incidentally there are 5 left, do you want one?
Nope, I buy local !

yep, there is always some principled reason.
You were going to mail me one?  I didn't think you were serious.
BTW , I saw one of those Blue ones at the Farmer's Market last week & it was going for $5 each. I didn't think that was worth it so I moved on.

yeah i was not impressed with the taste of the large blue green pumpkin ... not quite so very sure how it happened to grow in my plot ... chalk that up to partual awareness of which starts i got.   These are sugar pumpkins, quite a bit smaller ... i'm about to go taste the meat now.

Yep if you want a pumpkin i will fedx one to you.
