I mentioned a few weeks ago that I had harvested all of my pumpkins. Well it seems that one was hiding from me and went rouge.
Kim was outside today talking to the chickens (or something like that), and happened to notice a big orange thing in our jasmine vine.
It wasn’t connected to anything, just hanging there. A few more windy days and it would have hit the ground and smashed open!
Luckily for me, it still had about 7cm of stem attached, and was undamaged. It will store well and is about the about the same size as the other pumpkins that I harvested.
So now I can up the tally for this year to 8! I just love pumpkin surprises.
I love the title of this post!

Great title. My son came in only the other day with a pumpkin surprise. It was only a baby though. Still combined with a half a sweet potato it made a great soup.
