Squishy goodness

Tonight, I finally got around to cleaning, peeling, and cooking that pumpkin I bought. I managed to put up nine 1.5 cup pkg of fresh pumpkin for pies. I hate canned pumpkin -- yuck! Only fresh for me!

Then I mashed the pulp of that basketful of persimmons Jean Taylor gave me through a colander. It yielded 2 cups of purest goop -- just enough for one batch of persimmon pudding -- an Indiana delicacy! Plus, I'm going to save the seeds for planting out in our holler.

The earth has yielded its increase. God, our God, has blessed us. Yowzah!
