Fall Harvest

Today we harvested about 30 pumpkins from our garden! We also had quite a few canteloupe, yellow squash, green onions, green beans and 2 watermelons.

The 11th grade boys class had a feast of the canteloupes.
Our kindergarten class also tasted some canteloupe last week. Today, they had a snack of fresh yellow squash. We even found a "twin squash" where 2 were conjoined. How fascinating!

Since we've cooked pumpkin every which way: pumpkin soup, pilaf with pumpkin, roasted pumpkin seeds, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin cheesecake (with some local goat cheese), we let the 8th grade girls each take a pumpkin home to their families. We also sent them home with recipes to make their own pumpkin cheesecake with their parents for Thanksgiving dinner.
