Happy Halloween!

We actually carved pumpkins this year!  Well, Shane did it, and Adam and I watched.  I did have the job of "gutting" them (and then cooking and freezing the flesh for Thanksgiving pumpkin-pie...yummm).  No, you cannot find pumpkins like these in Sakhalin.  The Russian pumpkin is much smaller (about the size of a cantaloupe).  My friend brought the seeds back from California and her father grew them at his dacha (a Russian summer house).   I think our pumpkins turned out quite nicely....and Adam agrees!
