My Love Affair

Okay, I must confess! I've had a secret Love Affair for many years. (Ssshhhhh!!! Don't tell my Hubby!)

It's the type of affair that only really surfaces during the Autumn of the year. And NO, I'm not talking about Candy Corn or Halloween. Though Candy Corn does run a close second. (Mmmmm, gotta love those Candy Corn Kernals!!) And Halloween - well, that's a whole other story!

But I'm digressing..... Back to my Love Affair. (You know you're just waiting for the 'good parts'!)

Pumpkins! Gourds! How I love those wonderful vining vegetables! There is just something so very delightful about the feel of a pumpkin or a gourd. Their shape, their skin texture (or lack of), their many unusual sizes and shapes and colors. And the many ways they can all be used! From eating to crafting. Now that's what I call a most useful vegetable!
Over the next few weeks, as the Garden Catalogs arrive, I will be posting more about this Love Affair. (Do Garden Catalogs have centerfolds?? They should! A nice, big, fat, round Pumpkin!)

So stay tuned! You never know when I might get to the 'Good Parts'!
