Until about 5 o’ clock this evening, you could have been mistaken for wondering if it was actually the last day of October. It was sunny and 19°C – and my washing dried on the line in a couple of hours.
But the Halloween pumpkin got carved this afternoon and went straight into a pumpkin cake. Well, a tiny proportion of the flesh did. The rest is in the fridge, waiting for me to decide what to do with it.
Cakes is fine, though, and judging by how fast they disappeared this evening, I think the pumpkin could very soon be no more…. Then if I can get the second one still growing on the vine to ripen we can do it all over again. Without the trick or treating this time!
