  1. I am oft guilty of this because pumpkin carving is not my domain- but I will be asking him to consider a farm pumpkin this year. Thanks for linking to my recipe too – I’m getting quite addicted to baking with pumpkin! xx

  2. We visited a pumpkin patch this year and we paid £12 for 4 pumpkins to carve and a selection of delicious looking squashes, which I actually thought was pretty good value and like you say, it was the perfect opportunity to talk about how they grew.

    I did however also pick up some 39p tiny squashes for my Autumnal fireplace display from a cheap supermarket, guilty as charged!

  3. What a thought provoking read. Thank you for writing this. I must admit I had never really looked at it from this angle before. You are so right and in the future I will be more inclined to by my vegetables at local farms. Especially as being vegan I like to eat as much organic as possible but local farms would be better than buying it at my local super market x

    We need to see pumpkin recipes a lot more in the uk- roasted pumpkin, pumpkin and ginger jam, pumpkin pie, curries
    Instead of defacing and mutilating the poor thing- we need to teach kids and adults to cook and eat it
