We are now in the teens for our pumpkin harvest. Some are on the front porch, some are on the hearth, some are on the bookshelves in the living room. I placed a 12 oz glass in the first photo so you could see how tall the one in the back is. Pretty nice for a Spirit Bush pumpkin. There are 4 or 5 more that will be ready soon.
I better get back to making preparations for the Gingerbread Haunted House. I just mixed up the dough (I haven't found a gluten free gingerbread recipe that holds up for long and makes sturdy enough walls so I made a regular white flour recipe and my hands are itchy - time to break out my steroid cream)
Royal icing is next! I make the gates, railing, and decorative edging before hand and let it dry on wax paper. Then it's easy to apply it to the house with a little more icing.
My son carried all of these pumpkins down the hill and into the kitchen and onto the cabinet all on his own. Amazing!
