We’ve had a few nights of lite frost with more to come, so I’ve picked all the pumpkins except for a few unripe ones. The plants are not totally dead yet but look pretty wasted now. Time to pick the rest of the maize, squash, tomatoes and other frost sensitives too.

Temporary storage on the porch behind the house. The cellar is already quite full.

We only need about 20 to 30 pumpkins for the winter, so the rest will have to be sold, given away or thrown on the compost.
