カボチャがゴロゴロ Nothing but Pumpkins




つい先日、畑のカボチャの葉っぱがクタッととして来たので、そろそろ片付けようと根っこを引っこ抜き、蔓をズルズル引っ張っていたところ、出てくる出てくる!なんと合計8個の大きなカボチャが蔓にぶら下がって顔を出しましたー

夏の初めの長雨、盛夏の酷暑、そして、なんと、イノシシの侵入を許してしまって里芋、ジャガイモ、サツマイモが全滅。今年の我が家の畑は災難続きで、なんとなくモチベーションが下がっていたのですが、そんなあれやこれやに負けず、ひっそりすくすく育っていたこのカボチャ達に救われました。

ありがとう、カボチャ。でも、、、こんなにたくさんどうしましょう??

美味しいカボチャ料理をご存知の方、ぜひ教えてくださいー


Because it rained too much in early summer, then got way too hot in mid-summer,

and more than anything, a wild boar sneaked into our garden and ate all potatoes(regular potatoes, yams, and taros), our garden didn't have much produce this summer....Except for PUMPKINS!

While I was clearing the garden the other day, I found 8 big pumpkins!

I didn't notice there were so many because they were hiding under broad bushes...

As I pulled the vines, I felt the weight...then one after another they appeared.

It was just like fishing pumpkins, a really fun surprise that made my day!

But what should I do with so many of them??

If any of you know good pumpkin recipes, let me know 😄
