The meal began with a delicious squash soup. The main dish was a squash and cheese pie, served with two different squash dishes. We had of course squash bread for dessert. Myra served the food and talked about preparing the food. Louie talked about growing squash and pumpkins. He also explained what the different varieties were in the last picture. Then we all headed out to the pumpkin patch where more questions were asked and those who desired could purchase what they wanted direct from the field.
  • September 10, 2003 at 5:00 p.m. - Ekeby Badhus    Theme: spaghetti squash

This time we started out with Louie's good pumpkin vegetable soup with "barley rice", which is crushed barley that you cook about like rice. For the main course we had spaghetti squash with three different sauces, each served right in the shell. Pumpkin bread was served with coffee. Everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. Louie talked about the pumpkins out in the field and we ended up out in a very wet pumpkin patch, as it rained most of the day. The participants were however prepared and came with boots and rain gear.
  • September 17, 2003 at 5:00 p.m. - Ekeby Badhus    Theme: raw pumpkin/squash

        03091715.jpg (51108 byte)    Everyone had fun out in the field looking at the variation in size, shape and color of the different pumpkins. Our granddaughter found one just her size to sit on. Darkness comes fast, so we were limited as to how long we could be out in the field.
  • September 24, 2003 at 5:00 p.m. - Ekeby Badhus    Theme: Halloween

03092409.jpg (52819 byte)    03092412.jpg (51375 byte)    03092413.jpg (68677 byte)     The last Pumpkin Safari for the season was held. The same delicious menu as last week was served with the exception that even a real American pumpkin pie was served for dessert. The theme was Halloween. Myra showed pictures from earlier Halloween parties and Louie demonstrated how to carve a Jack-O-Lantern. We had to hurry to get out to the field before it got dark, as it was already dark by 7:45 p.m. The last participants left the field after dark.

Lots of questions from experienced gardeners gave way to interesting discussions. A perfect evening awaited us out in the pumpkin patch where everyone spread out to find as many unusual pumpkins as possible. It however got dark fast or many could have stayed out there much longer.
