Ruminations and recipes from a small kitchen in a big city.

9.2.04

The vegetable garden under siege from giant pumpkins.

Despite what you may have gathered from the previous post, the tomatoes haven't been successful this year, and from what I've been hearing, many others have had the same experience. Plenty of foliage and flowers, but not many tomatoes. Whatever.

While the tommies haven't worked, the pumpkins have taken over. The entire patch has been overrun with pumpkin vines, their big green leaves creating a quite attractive canopy dotted with the yellow flowers, whilst down below, some monster pumpkins are growing.

Expect lots of pumpkin recipes soon. In fact, if you have any good ones, email me with them.
