I'm buying cans of it right now. Not for myself. But for the constipated Oldcat Oscar-Tyrone. I mix pumpkin with his food. It helps him much with his issues.
I can't say that I am a fan of pumpkin, though. I know during this season that pumpkin pie is popular. We never had it during this time while I was growing up.
We had sweet potato pie.
But I am always amazed at the various winter vegetables available during this time of year. Like these:
Not sure what these are. I think they are gourds. I am not sure what you do with them. For decoration or cooking. Not sure. I'm not big on decorating, and I like summer squash and zuchinni also.
But back to the pumpkin, which is in the same crop group as squash. I came across a batch of pumpkins while perusing the local Whole Foods store.
I was... perplexed, to say the least. What's up with the bumpy pumpkins?
I have a hard time wrapping my mind around buying a whole pumpkin, but one that is all bumpy. Not sure about that.
Of course these are heirloom, special varieties. I see the hierloom tomatoes all the time. They come in strange colors and are shaped funny.
I'm wondering who was the first farmer to see a bumpy pumpkin and ate some of it. I would've thought it was diseased or something.
I won't be having any. I'll let ya'll pumpkin eaters go and try it out, because it looks like something for the true pumpkin eaters.
Let me know how they are!
