got around to steamin some pumpkin and Virginia made some pies from the first batch.
We are putting some of the pumpkin in the freezer and will try one batch in the freeze-drier to see if that will work,---never did it before, so it just a test.
Finally got most of the onions done. Gave 400 pounds of them to the food bank.
This first pumpkin weighed 16 pounds. the one I am holding weighs 31 pounds. Most of the rest range from 10 to 15 pound range average.
This is the best commercial pie pumpkin out there. Steams down to a non-stringy pie ready filler, just add sugar, eggs, milk, cinnamon, and what ever you want to it, pour into the pan and bake.
The last pic is the big boy at 31 pounds.
Garden is winding down for the season with a lot of rain now making it hard to do and fall work. Hope to plow before the ground freezes.
