Flattened French pumpkins last of 2009 bounty
Bemidji Minnesota P.O. Box 455 56619

I was surprised last fall to find, after the frost wilted the leaves in the upland garden, a healthy crop of winter squash. It was a cold summer, not, I thought, conducive to squash production. We've eaten most of the butternuts, buttercups, acorns and Mandans. What's left, and I admit being a little tired of, are rouge vif d'etampes, the flattened squash that are a sort of French pumpkin, like the one Fairy Godmother used to make Cinderella's coach.
