The answer is 289. What is the question? You have to read all of my post to find out.
This year I planted a few hills of pumpkin in a corner of the garden. I wound up with 25 pumpkins! I have harvested about half of them. The rest are not quite ready according to the all knowing knowledge source – You Tube!! I planted some last year but only had one pumpkin and I accidentally ran over it one day while bush hogging. We have canned 7 quarts and made a few pies already. I am going to start looking for a few more pumpkins recipes!
Many people talk about how hard pumpkin is to cook. Here is a method that has worked for us. Cut the pumpkin in half and remove the seeds and “innards”. Place the cut side down in a metal pan and place about 1/2 inch of water in the bottom of the pan. Bake in the oven at 450 degrees for 45 minutes to an hour. Check with a fork to determine when it is done. You can then scoop the pumpkin out of the skin with little trouble. WARNING – Do not use a glass pan. We had one break with us when we tried it. I think we let it cook too long and the water boiled out of the pan!
That is all for now. Oh, the question is – how many seeds were in the pumpkin We cooked this morning
