I always assumed that pumpkins were for American kids and in the UK the turnip was the domestic lantern veg of choice. This week I fond out kids in the UK have been using Pumpkins for years and it turns out I was just poor! (somethings never change)
I might not be able to do much about the fact I'm poor but I'm an adult now and so help me I can have a pumpkin if I want one.
This is my very first pumpkin, I carved him last night and now we've formed an affectionate bond.
