    Had to do a trip to Brisbane so brought some Golden Nugget pumpkins down for our daughter and she made us a delicious pumpkin soup for tea

    I love pumpkin soup. I make it with potato and garlic.
    But due to critter attack I haven't grown a pumpkin in more than three years!:(

    Hi ClissAT Pumpkin is one of our favorite dishes with soup, boiled or roasted and this year we had a very good return with the number of pumpkins we have in storage. We have enough to see us through 12 months and with a few extras to share with friends. We will eat the Golden Nuggets first then the Jap and Butternut and finish on the Jarrahdales. Dave

    Nice! Fruit fly tend to smash our pumpkins. If we get them to ripen before spring here it's usually ok but into spring and the fruit fly sting the stalk end over and over until the hard skin softens. Buggers...

    I love pumpkin. Critter attack over the last few years have been a problem here as well. I am determined to win so I have to come up with new strategy.
