    I had one puny pumpkin plant from Orchard Supply…it took over the garden, growing to 40’x20′ easily, and I had 29 pumpkins on it. Big pumpkins. I was giving them away as party favors at my daughter’s birthday. I am still baking/pureeing/freezing. Luckily, we love pumpkin!

    We sure never have to worry about a pumpkin shortage like those Libby customers. We can do our own :hungry:

    I love fresh pumpkin, too. But I must be lazier than you, I don’t bother to cut in half. I just wrap a whole pumpkin in a little tin foil (just to protect the cookie sheet from the juices) and set on a cookie sheet. When done it just slices apart with a butter knife. This method does render the seeds useless as far as baking them separately, I think.

    I love home cooked pumpkin. I’ve ruined my sister too! Totally corrupted her. She, too, had grown up eating the stuff from the can. Some years ago, I learned how to do pumpkins at home. She came over for Thanksgiving and has never looked back at the stuff in the can.
    lol

    And it makes such good soup, too!

    Oh, I forgot to tell you, I’d LOVE to win the BBB too. Every time I want to can something, I have to look it up on the internet to know what the processing time is.

    I think it is so awesome the way that you use everything and don’t let anything go to waste. I want to be you when I grow up…okay?

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
