Yesterday afternoon I decided it was time to cut open one of our pumpkins!
I have never grown pumpkins before and I was concerned that I had picked them too soon!
And then I was worried that they had not had enough time in the sun.
I told myself to get over it and just cut the damn thing open!
(I must sound like a fruit cake - who worries about growing and harvesting pumpkins??)
I had to find a very large knife to do the job, I did contemplate getting the
small axe out but I thought that was not the best choice!!
After a bit of muscle-usage...I could see that I was not going to be disappointed.
ooh la la.....I was getting a little bit excited at this stage.
I was one very happy Mumma.
Guess what is going to be on the dinner plate most nights this week??
*Edit- note to self* - the pumpkins were picked when the stems began to turn brown-ish. The pumpkins were cut from the plant with approx 10cm of stem. The pumpkins were placed on a table with a good amount of direct sun for 7-10 days, before the first pumpkin was cut open.
