While not quite as charming as Backyard Giants author Susan Warren’s guest rant here about giant pumpkins, Anne Raver’s NY Times piece yesterday about pumpkin contests is worth a read–if only for the how-to tips.
I totally enjoyed my winter squash experience this year: Big aggressive dinosaur vines. Loads of weird blue knobby things to eat this winter, hubbards and Jarrahdale pumpkins. Not to mention super-dense and delicious buttercups and butternuts. Plus my daughter Grace’s superb, big flat Halloween pumpkins. Next year? More.
