It's the Great Pumpkin Edition

Gourd season is officially here, and with it, delicious recipes and fun projects

HINGHAM, Mass. - BostonChron -- What says October as much as pumpkins?! Eat them. Carve them. Use them for decorations. You can even store them to enjoy all winter in sweet and savory dishes like pies, soups, and muffins. There are so many ways to enjoy pumpkins, and we're exploring dozens of them in this month's Food Gardening Magazine issue!

While they may be what you see on prominently on display, October isn't just about pumpkins. This is the season of winter squash and root vegetables, too! Bright summer flavors might be winding down, but the earthy, sweet flavors of fall are just getting started. In fact, there's still time to plant some of these delightful late season flavors!

The winds may blow and the nights may be a little cooler, but you can still plant vegetables like onions, spinach, carrots, and more. We'll take a look at some of these in this issue of Food Gardening Magazine. We'll also get into some fun projects like carving pumpkins, saving and cooking pumpkin seeds, and, naturally, enjoying pumpkins, winter squash, and other root vegetables in the kitchen!
