The End of the Pumpkin Season

Well, we have certainly had a great season in the vegetable garden with lots of zucchinis, tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce, apples – the list goes on! We have also had a fab season for pumpkins and this afternoon we picked them all as we are having an early frost tonight which may kill the vines, but could also freeze the pumpkins so that when opening – say in three months time – they will be slop… not even OK to make soup with potentially.

(PS – I plan to do a painting of these pumpkins – aren’t they gorgeous!)

So not only did we (hubby & I ) pick the pumpkins I then went into the studio to make some platters, plates, coasters, rings and pendants impressed with pumpkin leaves. This idea has been popular in my ETSY shop so I thought I should make more while I still had the leaves available!

And this is an idea of the finished product 🙂

I hope to make more leaf imprinted plates and jewellery using whatever may be in season at the time – so stay tuned 🙂

  5. Love what you’ve done with pumpkin leaves!! Your work is brilliant!!

    It’s so interesting to me that you are celebrating your fall season while we here in the States are in spring season. I forget that our seasons are opposite of yours!
