It’s traditional, I’ve got to:
though I must admit these were not grown by me. They’re from some friends, and were grown from saved seeds. However, squashes do cross like nobody’s business, and these are definitely best as ornaments. Fortunately it was only soup, and you can zap up the tastelessness with all sorts of other things. Chillies. Lots of chillies.
One down, two left to decorate the house.
And now I have to go and make sure I’ve got some appropriately ghoulish sweets in for the small vampires, wraiths and zombies who will call round once it gets dark. Must remember to leave the outside light on and not set the man traps… Oooooooooooo
