539 Harvest

I did this plein air painting yesterday at Michell's farm. They are harvesting halloween pumpkins. I'm told that farmer Michell doesn't make any profit on the pumpkins but grows them every year just to watch the children's faces as they select their  pumpkin.

Most people don't eat halloween pumpkins. I'm one of the exceptions. I still have frozen pumpkin in my freezer from last year. I add it to soups, curries,pancakes and puddings. I have happy childhood memories of watching my wonderful grandmother (cook extraordinaire) make pies from our jack-o-lanturns  after halloween. Every time I use my pumpkin these wonderful memories come back to me.
