Smashing Pumpkins

Alas, my intention to brew a pumpkin ale has come unstuck. Mainly because I've lost my pumpkins. Mind you, Lynda will tell you I lost them ages ago :)

We had a bumper harvest last year and it seems like we've eaten squash with everything since October. Even so, there were plenty left stored in the garage and I had earmarked one for a brew.

I checked them the other day, on the basis that I'd be able to conjure up a brew soon with my dizziness on the mend, but they had begun to spoil.They're good for nothing but the compost heap now, so the pumpkin ale will have to wait until the next harvest. No bad thing, some might say...
