My one pumpkin I grew this year
Mishaps at cooking or My Oh My Pumpkin Pie!
This week I read about Kim a fellow bloggers mishap of cooking her first turkey. Well I remember yes way back when we lived in Wyoming in the 70’s and the first time I made a pumpkin pie from scratch. One of the nice things I can say about the home we lived in was the great soil and wonderful lilac bushes. The first year we lived there the grocery stores ran out of pumpkins so I was determined to grow a pumpkin so I would not be upset in the fall. Fall isn’t Fall without a pumpkin or two. I ended up with thirteen pumpkins and that was with a little plot of a garden! I was so happy so come October before the frost got my beautiful pumpkins

So as I baked my pumpkin pie I was little disappointed when it was done and it had not risen. I told my husband and one of my new friends in Wyoming and they both couldn’t believe how I had made this pumpkin pie using pumpkin guts essentially. Everybody had a laugh and I was a little embarrassed so today I am harvesting my one pumpkin and thinking back at a young new mother who once had a garden with thirteen beautiful pumpkins and this year this is as good as I got for a pumpkin. Happy Sunday
