I planted kabocha pumpkins (small pumpkins that do well here) in the greenhouse and outside, and I am just so hoping one version or the other will take off. I am getting blossoms on the greenhouse version, but although the ends of the greenhouse are open, I am not sure any bees are buzzing around, so not sure if fruit will set. I do hope so - I love pumpkin with quinoa and glazed tofu, pumpkin curry soup, and pumpkin dinner rolls made with kabocha. It would be safe to say I am craving pumpkin right now. Of course, considering that I just put in the seeds in the outside garden, I am still a good four months away from enjoying any....unless I can find a good deal at a farmer's market.
Even though the winds have been off-and-on south winds, and it has been fairly sticky at lower elevations, up here it is still nice and cool and pumpkins and other fall ingredients, soups and stews are sounding good.
I think I will go make some baked bean soup right now. That sounds good with some cornbread for dinner tonight.
