Acres and acres of pumpkins — 12 Comments

  1. Sheryl,

    Yep. We got snow. Twice. But the pumpkin farm didn’t and David and I drove back there and got another load just before it got real cold and snowed again. Right now we have two tons of pumpkins for the critters (and us), plus a bunch in the house because they were so pretty. I DO love pumpkins and squash!!!


  2. Franci,

    I was also thinnking “seeds!” and will definitely be toasting a bunch for us to snack on. I’ve never done them at 450 degrees to pop open. I’ll sure try it. Less roughage that way. Darn…now I’m hungry for a snack!


  3. Just saw on the news that northern MN has SNOW! Good thing you went when you did to get the pumpkins!

  4. Jackie,

    Thank you for the tomato seeds I received last week. For us, it was like getting a gift from a good friend even though we’ve never met you. Your first name is used often in our house, “Jackie says….” :)

    Wonderful picture of you and the pumpkins!!

  5. Congratulations on your great haul! I love farm auctions also. We have made some great buys there over the years. I so look forward to reading about your life on the homestead. Thank you for sharing.

  6. What a great stash of pumpkins. Think of all the seeds! I love pumpkin seeds and accidentally found that if I first soak them in hot salt water overnight then put them in the oven at 450 for a few minutes then turn the heat down, they will pop open. Much easier to eat the pepitos. Just have to watch so they don’t scorch. Also found the seeds from winter squash are delicious toasted just like pumpkiin seeds.

  7. …and I have to pay 5 bucks apiece! What a wonderful stash you have and I know it brings great piece of mind. Wonderful

  8. I love the picture of you and the pumpkin. The joy just shines out of you and lights up everything.

  9. The trip to the pumpkin farm sounded like fun!! Just wanted to let you know how much info I glean from your questions and comments. Love it and the pictures you show of the homestead Thanks again
