Despite the children splashing away in the pool today and temperatures teasingly close to 40°C over the past week, the garden is not letting us be fooled and is announcing loud and clear summer’s end. The zucchini and pumpkin are fruiting their last hurrah even though the vines are starting to shrivel up and die. Still there is plenty of pumpkin to go around. Some of the delights we’ve enjoyed over the past couple of weeks include pumpkin and cous cous cakes, Thai pumpkin and green bean curry, and vegetable muffins featuring pumpkin. …and when that cool change does finally arrive (boo-hoo) there will be pumpkin soup.
