    I have never heard of an orange colored watermelon. Amazing.

    Wonderful pumpkin Rob carved. Would scare me to death at night. Shame we don’t have Haloween here ๐Ÿ™‚

    Wow, what a pretty watermelon! And nifty pumpkin as always. Other than the seeds, do you guys also get around to eating the pumpkin when you carve ’em? I’ve had a craving for pumpkin lately.

    You guys sure are having fun with those pumpkins! I’ll have to try some of that watermelon too! I love watermelon in fruit salads.

    Bazu, I like to use the smaller pie pumpkins for cooking and baking. They seem to taste better and are easier to slice up because they’re not as thick. I’ve had a taste for pumpkin too. Everyone keeps blogging about those pumpkin muffins from VwaV so I might try those soon. I know I’ve been a wee bit obsessed lately with the pumpkin seeds!! ha ha!

    And not to sound like a total miser but pie pumpkins have been expensive lately, even at the farm stands. They want $5 for a big carving pumpkin and $2 for a pie pumpkin. Rob said just buy the darn pie pumpkins but it’s the principal of the thing. They should be 4/$5! They’ll probably be cheap now that it’s October. I’m going to look for some this weekend ๐Ÿ™‚ You can only imagine how many times Rob rolls his eyes at me….LOL

    I agree, we have been looking for good-priced pumpkins too, but haven’t found any real deals. You are right that it’s the principle! Is it just me, or has everything gone up in price lately? I noticed produce prices are higher in the grocery store, and even mundane things like cat litter have suddenly shot up- what the…?

    Wow – cool pumpkins! I like to use pie pumpkins too but they’re 78 cents a pound here, which makes a small one almost $4. Usually, I wait until right before Thanksgiving before plunking down $8 for two of them so I can freeze the pulp for the winter. It’s so much better than canned.

    does the watermelon taste the same as a red one?

    I’ve not tried a yellow watermelon yet. Maybe next summer.

    The jacks look great, I’m can’t wait until I can carve some soon.

    The soysage breakfast and the “egg” salad looks yummy!

    Oooooooh, spooky! Love the pumpkins, keep ’em comin’, Emmy. I dig the orange watermelon. You can tell it’s orange on my screen here, and i like the look. Different = better. You are brave to try so many things that many would not take the time to investigate, Emmy.

    Your grandma is open minded and so with it. I remember when you posted pix of her… so lively at her age, it’s remarkable and very cool… I love yoru grandmother’s interest in cooking/food and your take on things. Involved and interested… that’s love!

    Thanks for the nice comments everyone ๐Ÿ˜€

    Midwest Vegan, I couldn’t agree more about using fresh pumpkin over canned. Wow, 78ยข a pound for pie pumpkins? What is the world coming to! The orange watermelon tastes similar to a red watermelon, but the its sweeter. Sweeter in a good way, which makes it a bit more flavorful. My mom said it tastes like it was kissed with honey but then caught herself and said, well a vegan substitute for honey. LOL

    Bazu, I’ve noticed that too. All the prices seem to be going up. I’ve noticed it with things like canned goods especially. I can get the organic 365 brand (Whole Foods) canned goods around the same price, or sometimes a little cheaper than regular non-organic brands at a typical supermarket! Who would think Whole Foods would be cheaper than a grocery store? LOL

    You inspired us to pick up some pumpkins on Monday – we’ll be carving this weekend!
