We went to pick pumpkins this afternoon. It was a pretty day. Sunny and 60.
This little fellow was so darn cute pulling his wagon of pumpkins half his size.
We went home and carved the pumpkins. **Note to self...do not buy a gourd next time. Mine is the one on the far right, supposed to be 3 bats over a bell tower. Well the skin was so thick, after breaking 2 knives on it my husband decided to go get the scroll saw to help me out. So needless to say we lost the ears and part of the wings on my bats and as you can see there is no bell in the tower. lol Oh well, we thought it was a cool pumpkin because it had bumps all over it. Well, it was not a pumpkin after all but a gourd.
We roasted the pumpkin seeds for one hour at 250' tossing them every 15 minutes. I used Sea salt on them while they were still damp.
