However, who can grow the biggest, best and most beautiful pumpkin of them all?
On April Fool’s Day at the Dargle Local Market we urge you to bring along your best specimen to enter the inaugural Dargle Local Pumpkin Competition. Will yours weigh the most, be the most crinkly or colourful? Curious prizes will be on offer in various catergories. Don’t miss this chance to flaunt your favourite gourd.
There will also be a prize for the best recipe for ‘Pumpkin Fool’ – it may be reminiscent of Eton Mess, with undertones of Real Earth – or it may not, who knows?. Post your recipes as comments at the bottom of this page.
