5 Days of Pumpkins: Queensland Blue

Our pumpkin harvest is rolling in and we are stacking them up to store for our winter fodder. These vegetables come in a beautiful array of forms, sizes and colours, so much so that I was inspired to paint their portraits...

Good old qld blue. These are one of the grand daddies of the cucurbits,
at least the biggest in my pumpkin patch. One of them was so big
that I certainly wasn't even going to try lifting it.
Not as sweet as some but good as a wholesome
accompaniment to a tasty meat.
I like to roast mine until the juices ooze.
