took over, so I banned pumpkins this year. We planted cantaloupe and watermelon, but only the watermelons took off. One sneaky bugger got really big without our noticing. However, it’s taken me weeks to get the kids together to share it. I finally threatened to donate it to the food pantry and that brought a gaggle of kids over to eat it last Wednesday.
In the meantime, I've been putting my new dehydrator to use drying serrano, jalapeno, ghost and cayenne peppers so that I can grind my own chili powder.
