I wanted some more variety of pumpkins in my vegetable garden!
I grew all of the pumpkin plants myself, mostly from organic seeds bough through the organic gardening association VELT. And they all delivered! Plenty!
I store the pumpkins in our cool cellar, and they will keep good for months to come. I also prepare some pumpkin puree (mash) and put it in handy portions (1 cup, two cups) in the freezer. Ready to use for those occasions when I don’t have the time to cut and clean a pumpkin.
This is our collection of all the pumpkins that we harvested this year (yes, I think I overdid it a bit ;-).
Different varieties: Potiron Bleu, Uchi Kuri, Red Kuri, Spaghetti Squash, Sweet Dumpling and Butternut. And some undetermined that just grew on the compostheap.
I just harvested the butternuts today (the bottle shaped pumpkins). These are the most difficult to ripen I find. But I’m taking them inside anyway now, as it’s getting close to freezing point some nights.
Love the pumpkins (and the cat!!!) 🙂
What a glorious harvest – and a lovely cat.
That’s a beautiful harvest! I love how the cat is posing with the pumpkins, ha.

Beautiful. The kitty in your photos is a nice touch indeed. Salivating over all those squashes…autumn can’t come soon enough here!!
What bounty! Gorgeous photos too. Is there such a thing as too much pumpkin though? 😉
