Name this new veggie
« on: October 14, 2023, 08:13:04 PM »
Zumpkins or Pucchinis?

From a cross-bred pumpkin in my garden patch.

It's been four days. Have they sprouted stingers yet?

They aren't were I left them, but surely someone must have moved them.

Creepy music eh. I have never watched an episode of the Twilight Zone.

The googly-eyed zumpkins at Halloween. Sadly we didn't get any trick or treaters come to the door on account of us living in the middle of nowhere.

In Scotland, trick-or-treaters are called "guisers" and we didn't get any this year. I think the rain kept them away. Or maybe it was the electric fence I put up every October 31st.
Anyway, those are spooky vegetables, Diane!

I had a theme of googly eyes this Halloween - made my visiting son some little monster cupcakes (because he is only 29) and stuck a couple in my hubby's tatos and called it "monster mash" - minimum effort, maximum fun.

I turned off all the lights and hid behind the sofa. Can I come out now?

Sure, as soon as you give it a bit of a dust.
